Phoenix police said they were forced to shoot and kill a man who was driving with a 5-year-old boy beside him after he tried to ram their patrol cars Monday night.

Sgt. Trent Crump said officers were unaware of the child in the blue Ford Taurus until after they shot the driver.

Officer tried to pull over the suspect after he was seen driving recklessly about 11:30 p.m. Monday, Crump said. They tried to block the Ford at West McDdowell Road and the Black Canyon Freeway when the driver accelerated toward them, initiating a chase.

The suspect reached 2900 W. Madison St., believed to be his residence, when he crashed into a brick wall along the driveway, Crump said.

As one officer approached, the suspect gunned his car in reverse toward the officers and into their police Chevrolet Tahone when one of the officers fired at the driver.

The suspect continued to try and free his car from the Tahoe and toward another officer when a second shot struck and killed the suspect.

No officers were hurt.

It was the fourth of five officer-involved shooting in the Valley since Saturday.
