Police sniper shot suspect from helicopter after high-speed car chase

The driver was then shot by officers who hovered above the scene in a police helicopter. The three passengers in the vehicle his car hit were taken to the hospital and their condition remains unknown at this point.

“It’s a public safety issue once he starts going the wrong way,” Bozek said. “Obviously, he doesn’t care about passengers or pedestrians or other cars.”

Sherriff’s deputy continued on to assert that because the pursuit had reached speeds of over 100 miles per hour on surface streets, the shooting was needed to prevent “more injuries to the public,” despite the fact that the suspect had already exited his vehicle.
