Carjacking suspect fatally shot by deputies

JEFFERSON, La. (AP) - A Jefferson Parish carjacking and police chase ended with the suspect fatally shot by deputies.
Shortly before midnight Monday, Col. John Fortunato says a Metairie man told authorities that he was carjacked on Causeway Boulevard.
Fortunato says the stolen Jeep Cherokee was spotted a short time later on Jefferson Highway.
After a short chase, Fortunato says the driver climbed out of the vehicle and refused orders to surrender to deputies. When the suspect pointed a gun at the three deputies, he says they opened fire, hitting the suspect several times. The unidentified suspect was pronounced dead on the scene.
