CITRUS HEIGHTS, Calif. (AP) - Citrus Heights police say officers have shot and killed a woman after she rammed a suspected stolen car into two police cars and led authorities on a chase.
Sgt. David Moranz said the woman in her 20s rammed into a police car when officers tried to pull her over around 11:30 a.m. Sunday in Fair Oaks. He said she took off, leading the officers on a high-speed chase in which she drove on the wrong side of the road.
The chase ended when she rammed into another police car. Moranz said two officers in that car feared for their safety and fired several rounds into the suspect's car, fatally striking her.
The Sacramento Sheriff's department was investigation of the shooting because it happened in an unincorporated area of the county.
