News: Phoenix High Speed Chase Ends in Shooting

Suspect leads officers on high speed chase in Phoenix reports 

Suspect fled for over an hour and was ultimately shot by police as he sped towards a DPS officer who was on foot.  The DPS officer drew his gun and fired 5 shots as the suspect sped towards him. The suspect was wounded and crashed into a wall, which ended the case. 

In the state of Arizona, you can meet deadly force with deadly force in self-defense.  The suspect in this case is reported to have sped towards the officer who had no means of protection other than to fire shots as the suspect. 

1.) Do you believe the officer used an appropriate means of deadly force given the circumstances?
2.) Do you think the officer acted in self-defense?
3.) Under what circumstances do you believe the use of deadly force is justified?
