High-Speed Chase Suspect Killed

A suspected drunk driver shot and killed this morning during a high-speed police chase through three counties. Officers say they tried to pull the man over on Corridor G around three o'clock this morning but he hit the gas. He drove off into Lincoln County, turned around and drove back into Kanawha County. Police put out spike strips to try to stop him but he drove into the opposite lane, going the wrong way, and avoided them. The man then had one flat tire but kept going until he was finally stopped in a hail of gunfire near Ripley. He was dead at the scene.
