DALLAS (AP) - Dallas police have shot fatally the female driver of a car that had been reported as stolen.

Deputy Police Chief Thomas Castro says a report of a suspicious vehicle about 5 a.m. Wednesday brought officers to an apartment building just northeast of downtown. As officers approached the vehicle, the vehicle lurched backward into a police vehicle, then forward into a lattice fence, then backward again. At that point, police opened fire, fatally wounding the driver.

No officers were injured in the incident. No identities have been released.
