At 4:57, Toledo 911 received a call from a citizen that a young woman was struck by a car at Detroit and Prospect.

Shortly after the call came in, a Toledo Police unit observed a suspect vehicle on Prospect and attempted to stop it. The suspect vehicle refused to stop, according to officials, and the pursuit ended.

AT 5:05, TPD units say that the suspect vehicle struck a male at Oakland and Ferris.

Right after striking the man, the car stopped, authorities say.

Two TPD officers got out of their car to order the suspect out of his car... when the suspect sped towards the officers, pinning one against his police car.

Both officers then fired in self defense, striking the suspect several times.
