Around 3 am on Monday, April 21, a suspected carjacker in Foshan, Guangdong province was tailed by police into a toll booth / checkpoint, where he was surrounded and ordered to get out of the car. The suspect, surnamed Tan, did no such thing. He did the opposite of getting out, which is stepping on the accelerator, even if it meant ramming his car backwards into police vehicles and officers alike. Police reportedly fired warning shots into the air. Failing to deter the suspect, an officer fired at him. Efforts to resuscitate Tan were unsuccessful. Two officers were injured and three cars were totaled.
