A chase through the streets of Detroit came to a heart-stopping conclusion Friday in the middle of I-75 as the driver rushed into oncoming traffic before being taken down by police on top of a minivan.
Police said they were chasing the driver of a charcoal gray SUV because he shot a woman in the head in Southwest Detroit.
Sky 4 was in the air as the man drove the SUV on and off the highway, maneuvering through traffic on I-75, service streets and back roads.
There were times when the driver appeared to be trapped by the several police vehicles in pursuit, but he left the roadway multiple times to avoid capture -- once driving on the front lawn of a home to get around traffic stopped at a red light, and later driving over the center of a boulevard on Third Street to avoid a blockade.
At some point, the SUV's front driver-side tire was flattened, and he started losing speed on I-75. As police vehicles surrounded the slowing SUV, the shooting suspect pulled over on the left shoulder and parked.
He threw open the driver's door, got out and jumped over the center median. As police officers got out of their vehicles, the man ran into oncoming traffic on the other side of the freeway. He stopped as a blue minivan approached and tried to hurdle it, instead falling on the hood.
The man climbed onto the roof of the minivan and was surrounded by six police officers. One police officer charged up the front of the minivan, grabbed the shooting suspect and tackled him to the ground behind the minivan.
