PITTSBURGH - The Citizens Police Review Board is investigating a chase that ended with officers shooting two people in Pittsburgh's South Side earlier this month.
Officials said Homestead and Pittsburgh police chased a car from Homestead after the vehicle went through a red light.
The chase ended on East Carson Street when shots were fired.
Investigators said police shot 32-year-old Donald Burris Junior and his 49-year-old mother, Lena Davenport.
The police chief said they opened fire because the vehicle was being used as a deadly weapon. The executive director of the review board said as general rule, officers shouldn't open fire just to stop a vehicle.
Officials said the case will continue to be discussed at the board's next monthly meeting in February.
