Responding officers found a lone man, described as Hispanic and in his mid-20s. Police did not say what specifically prompted the shooting. It's still unclear how the shooting began, or how many shots were fired. "The police officer's vehicle traveled forward, striking the male and pinning him underneath it".
Fire department paramedics pronounced the man dead at the scene.
