A routine traffic stop in Flint Township yesterday ended with one man dead, after he tried to escape police on West Flushing Rd.

An officer pulled over a vehicle with four occupants, including a child. It is reported that the officer called for back up. Once back up arrived, the officer was able to get the people out of the car. That is when an unidentified male jumped back into the vehicle and tried to get away. Flint Township Police say the driver drove toward an officer, and that is when he was shot.
