The Virginian-Pilot has the following details:

An officer was sent to the South Wind complex in the 400 block of Fort Worth Ave. around 7 a.m. on a report that someone was tampering with a vehicle, said Officer Chris Amos, police spokesman. The officer parked perpendicular behind the vehicle, had gotten out of his patrol car and began verbally challenging the man when he put his vehicle in reverse.

The car went backward and hit the police vehicle, pushing it into the officer, who fired, Amos said. The officer wasn’t hurt.

The man pushed the patrol car out of the way and was able to turn around and head west on Fort Worth a short distance before crashing into a vehicle parked on the street, Amos said. The officer followed, but no other shots were fired.

Police broke out the driver’s side window of the vehicle to try to help the man, who died inside the car.

    Crime in this area does not seem to be improving. On Nov 6th, 2011 there was a murder in Oakdale Farms which is steps away from Wards Corner. Why has Wards Corner Now not reported this–its public knowledge?
