Police Find 5-Year-Old Boy In Passenger Seat After Officers Fatally Shoot Driver

PHOENIX (AP) — 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.

Crump says the boy discovered in the car wasn’t hurt.

No identities have been released.
