A traffic violation in Strongsville led to the chase back in March. Officers were involved in a fleeing and eluding incident that started on Pearl Road.
The officers said they attempted to stop a Roy Dale Evans, Jr.'s car for a traffic violation. A chase ensued.
"The pursuit ended on I-71 a short time later, and one Strongsville officer fired at least one shot, killing the male driver of the vehicle," the release stated.
A woman and three children were also in the van with Evans, but they were not physically injured, according to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations.
