Police shoot, kill man in Fife after stolen vehicle chase

FIFE, Wash. (AP) — Sheriff’s officials say officers shot and killed a person after a short chase involving a stolen vehicle in Fife. KOMO-TV reports early Friday officers responded to a report of a vehicle theft in progress, according to Sgt. Darren Moss Jr. of the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department. Moss says the caller reported he was following his stolen “yard truck” which is a vehicle used to move semi-trailers in warehouses and cannot go faster than 35 mph. Fife officers and Washington State Patrol tried to stop the vehicle, which damaged warehouses and also hit a Fife Police car. In a warehouse parking lot the sheriff’s office says officers radioed “shots fired,” then reported the person was dead.
