Police moved in and blocked Burrise from trying to escape, but he allegedly rammed a patrol car.
At one point during the incident, Burrise allegedly backed up into the path of an undercover officer. This prompted that officer – as well as two uniformed officers – to open fire at the suspect.

A search of Burrise’s car uncovered a loaded handgun with an extended magazine and a loaded illegally modified assault rifle loaded also with an extended magazine.
Investigators say Burrise was suspected in several other violent crimes – like shootings and street gang activity.
The three officers involved in the shooting have been placed on three-day paid administrative leave, per usual law enforcement policy following such incidents.

The outcome of officer-involved critical incidents will have a lasting impact on the involved officers, the families, and the community,” Jones wrote.
