1:155 p.m.

A suburban Chicago police chief says a suspected car thief appeared to have a gun when officers confronted him before he drove away in a chase that ended later when the suspect was shot to death in northwestern Indiana.

Crete, Illinois, Police Chief James Paoletti says his officers chased the car early Thursday to a church parking lot in nearby Dyer, Indiana, where the suspect acted as if he was going to shoot the officers. Paoletti tells The Associated Press the driver went back into Illinois where the car hit a pedestrian.

Authorities say the car returned to Dyer, where the suspect was shot by Indiana officers. Indiana State Police spokesman Master Trooper Glen Fifield says he couldn't immediately confirm whether the person shot was armed or what prompted officers to open fire.

Ben Dykstra tells WLS-TV his car was side-swiped by the fleeing car. He says officers were trying to break the car's windows before shots were fired.
