HORN LAKE, Miss. (AP) — Officials say Mississippi police officers shot and killed an unidentified man after he fired at them during a chase.
DeSoto County District Attorney John Champion tell reporters that a Horn Lake investigator was looking into armed robberies at automated teller machines when he posed as a customer at an ATM before dawn Monday in the Memphis, Tennessee, suburb.
Champion says other officers watching saw a man approach the undercover officer with a gun. When the officer identified himself, the man ran to a car. He rammed an officer's car, and four officers pursued. Champion says the man spun his vehicle and fired at an officer. Three officers returned fire, with at least one striking and killing the man.
The officers' identities were not immediately released.
