Phoenix police shoot, kill man during car chase

Phoenix police shot and killed a man overnight after he tried to back his car into two patrol cars after a road chase.

A 5-year-old boy in the back seat was uninjured. Police had been unaware there was a passenger.

The chase began near Interstate 17 and McDowell Road and ended near 27th Avenue and Van Buren Street.

Sgt. Trent Crump said officers fired at the vehicle when its driver twice accelerated in the direction of officers -- first after the driver slammed into the brick wall of a home, then changed directions and drove toward the second officer.
