Chase ends with deadly police-involved shooting

Posted: Updated:
A police chase has ended with shots fired and a stolen car suspect dead in Northwest Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma City Police tells FOX 25 it started as a pursuit of a stolen vehicle from the Dollar General at Northwest 50th and Meridian.  Investigators say the car's owner saw the suspect steal the car, gave chase, but lost the suspect.  Warr Acres and Oklahoma City Police began chasing the suspect at slow speeds, who stopped after 10-minutes near Northwest 61st and Quapah and exited the vehicle.

Investigators say the suspect was armed with a large knife and threatened officers.  Police tried  unsuccessfully using non-lethal rounds to get the suspect in custody.

Officers later opened fire on the suspect.  OKCPD Captain Dexter Nelson said the suspect died of his injuries. No names have been released at this time.

No officers were hurt.  Police are not sure which officer(s) fired the fatal shot(s).
