TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) - Torrance police have shot and killed a suspected drunken driver after a chase.

It happened around 2 a.m. Saturday after police in the Los Angeles suburb tried to pull over the driver of a Ford Ranger.

During a two-mile chase, police twice struck the back of the truck in an effort to make it spin and stop - the so-called PIT maneuver.

The chase finally ended with Torrance police shooting the man, although details of the confrontation haven’t been released. He was pronounced dead at a hospital. His name hasn’t been released.

News reports showed the windshield of the truck riddled with bullet holes.
