TUCSON – Traffic cameras at Sixth Avenue and Ajo Way captured the ending of a police chase where officers shot at a man in a truck.

Just before noon on Friday, officers pulled a man over at 12th Avenue and Ajo Way. After the stop, he rammed multiple cars in a drug store parking lot. At least 3 officers shot at him as he pulled out on Ajo Way, according to Tucson Police Sgt. Kimberly Bay.

Cell phone video captured the truck colliding with another truck at 12th Avenue.

Video provided by the city's photo enforcement camera vendor, American Traffic Solutions, shows he continued toward 6th Avenue where he ran a red light. He hit a car in the driver side door and collided with at least 3 more vehicles.

Then the video shows a police cruiser ramming the man's passenger side as he tried to get out of his truck. He escaped anyway and ran out of the camera's field of view.

He was shot with a Taser and taken to a hospital. Police are calling his injuries serious.

Police did not release his name Friday but said he is a 30-year-old white man being investigated for multiple violent crimes.

All the people involved in the collisions are expected to survive.
