Police Shoot & Kill Wrong-Way Driver From Helicopter During High Speed Chase On California Highway!
Deputy Shoots at Wrong-Way Driver From Helicopter, Forcing Freeway Closure Deputies shot the man from a helicopter. A fleeing driver who died on the 215 Freeway after coming under gunfire from a sheriff’s helicopter was identified Saturday as Nicholas Alan Johnson of Fontana. Johnson had led deputies on a high-speed pursuit in oncoming freeway traffic Friday after they attempted to stop his SUV in connection with a home-invasion robbery in Devore, a news release from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said. In Muscoy, a deputy in the helicopter fired at Johnson’s Chevrolet Tahoe, striking it several times, the release said. Johnson bailed from the moving SUV and ran a few yards before collapsing on the freeway. Johnson was struck by gunfire before getting out of the SUV, the release said. The official cause of death will be determined by an autopsy.
