Inland Empire Golf Course Car Chase Ends in Fatal Shooting

A high-speed chase through a California golf course ended in a fatal shooting by law enforcement on Tuesday, according to a report by NBC4 LA.

Golfers enjoying a Veteran's Day round at Eagle Glen Golf Club in Corona, Calif., were forced to scatter when a wanted felon barreled down the fairway in a minivan with officers in hot pursuit.

"This guy was absolutely dangerous," said Megan Haynes, who witnessed the chase. "He was probably 10 feet away from golfers, and even with our group, if he wouldn't have turned … We're lucky people didn't get hurt."

The police pursued the driver into a nearby suburban neighborhood where, witnesses say, he was fatally shot by Riverside County sherriff's deputies after crashing into a tree and attempting to flee on foot.
