OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Police say the California Highway Patrol shot and killed a man in Oakland after he ran from his vehicle waving a gun following a chase.

The incident began a little before 3 a.m. Tuesday when two CHP officers in a patrol cruiser spotted the man driving a BMW X5 SUV without license plates on Interstate 580.

Oakland police spokeswoman Johanna Watson says the driver refused to stop and led the officers on a chase through city streets.

He eventually crashed into two parked cars on a dead-end street. Watson tells the Oakland Tribune (http://bit.ly/Kzsrl1) both officers opened fire when the man ran from the vehicle with a gun.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. His name has not been released.
