VACAVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Police in Northern California have shot and killed a man they say rammed a patrol car during a chase.
Officers spotted a pickup truck doing doughnuts in a parking lot behind Vacaville City Hall near police headquarters Tuesday night and chased the truck, which struck a patrol vehicle near the Vacaville Skating Center.
An officer in the vehicle was treated for non-life threatening injuries at a hospital. Police say the chase ended a few blocks away, where a police officer opened fire, killing the driver, whose name wasn’t immediately released.
He died at the scene. Other details of the shooting haven’t been provided.
