OC Deputies Kill Man Who Took Patrol Car

Orange County sheriff's deputies shot to death a man they said stole a patrol car and ran over a deputy's foot.

A sheriff's spokesman said two deputies were approaching a
suspicious person about 7 p.m. Friday in Rossmoor when he jumped
into a patrol car.

The man drove over a deputy's foot before the deputies opened fire. The car hit a light pole and the man was taken to a hospital, where he died.

His identity wasn't immediately released.

The deputy wasn't seriously injured.
