Police say suspects in a fatal shooting in Saskatoon Monday ran over a pedestrian and crashed into a police car and a lamppost while trying to flee from cops.
At about 2 p.m., a police officer responded to reports of gunshots and found a man bleeding on the street. While tending to the injured man, the cop saw four people flee the scene in a getaway vehicle, which struck a pedestrian as it sped away, police said.
The officer stayed with the man while sending out a description of the suspects to other police cars in the area.
Police said another patrol soon spotted the vehicle, and in the ensuing chase, the vehicle crashed into the cop car and then a lamppost.
A cop fired a gun at least once, but didn't hit anyone.
The shooting victim died in hospital about an hour later, while the pedestrian was treated and released.
Two Toronto men, aged 19 and 23, a 21-year-old Edmonton man and a 23-year-old Saskatoon woman all appeared in court Wednesday on firearms charges related to a gun found in the vehicle.
Nobody has been charged yet in the homicide, but the investigation continues.
