It was a Lancer Evolution. All Evos are Lancers but not all Lancers are Evos.

At this point we had no choice but to shoot him....

Umm shoot the tires, back a car behind him, spike strip. Dont think he deserved to be shot 6 times and be put into a critical condition by police.

I don't get why they had to shoot him, that should be the absolute last resort in stopping him.

Sucks for the Evo and the driver.

Shooting him sounds a little extreme. But, I think he deserved it.

+1 maybe the guy had some kind of imbalance and he snapped... definitely did not deserve this. Poor kid, a victim of some cops with itchy trigger fingers.

Clearly we don't know all the facts of the case, so we can't really say if he deserved to be shot or not. If he was driving towards a cop or pedestrians, that would be cause to use lethal force. But again, we don't know any facts, especially from this poorly written and obviously not fact-checked article....

I heard the driver owns only BMWs since 16. His friend lend him an EVO for test drive to experience the 4wd performance. However, the car was so horrible during the drive he snapped and went nuts. As far as shooting, the cops were haters can't swallow a young guy driving an expensive car. ;-)




(What I said above is pure friction inspired by some ridiculous comments I have heard in car forums)

Shoot tires = bullshit from TV

The guy had it coming, he was threatening the lives of everyone around him

Enough with the PC Care Bear crap.

"We saw several cars veering to the right, and then I saw a black Mitsubishi sideways on two wheels go past me," said Kim O'Donnell, another witness.

Sideways on two wheels huh? Did you count em' Kim? Did you also notice any robotic instruments or limbs coming out of the side of the vehicle? Maybe it was a transformer?
