Officers Shoot Driver, Find 5-Year-Old in Passenger Seat
They'd have bagged him, too, if only they'd known
Phoenix authorities say a 5-year-old boy was found in a car's front passenger seat after police fired at the vehicle and fatally shot the driver.
Sgt. Trent Crump says the motorist evaded a traffic stop late Monday night after he appeared to be impaired.
Crump says officers later shot at the car and killed the driver after the vehicle struck a brick wall at a home and the man tried drive off—first in one direction toward officers and then in another direction toward a different officer.
