MESA (AP) — Police in Mesa say officers on Friday fatally shot a man driving a car that had been reported stolen.
Police spokeswoman Irene Mahone said the incident began when officers found a man slumped over the wheel of a car in a fast-food restaurant parking lot. The man ignored commands and instead drove away. A police helicopter spotted the vehicle in another parking lot. Arriving officers then shot the man.
Mahone did not say what led up to the shooting or whether the man was armed. The shooting will be investigated by Tempe police.
