Our chopper was overhead as officials followed the suspect's Corvette as it sped through town.
The suspect was reportedly going more than 100 miles an hour at some points.
The chase ended as the suspect crashed the Corvette near North Valley Parkway and Dove Valley Road. "Police did intervene and stopped the subject's movement," said Pfohl. "Shots were fired and the subject was pronounced dead here at the scene."
Phoenix police are calling it an "officer-involved shooting." Police say "one person is down and there are no injuries to officers."
"We know that two officers from our special assignments unit both fired their weapons," said Pfohl. "One is a 50-year-old officer with 29 1/2 years of service in the department. The other is a 45-year-with 8 1/2 years of service in the department.
"We saw a yellow Corvette, all banged up," said one witness who saw the aftermath of the crash. "A police officer who came over and was trying to tape up around a pole said this fellow had been shot and that he was wanted for some bad deed."
