From Chroniclet.com:

A Lorain, Ohio, man with a woman and three children in his van was shot and killed by police after a pursuit along Interstate 71 in Medina County early Tuesday.

Roy Evans Jr.’s identity was confirmed Tuesday evening by Medina County Coroner Dr. Lisa Deranek after a Strongsville police officer shot and killed Evans.

The early morning pursuit resulted in part of I-71 southbound being closed for several hours.

Strongsville Police Chief Mark Fender asked the Ohio Attorney General’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation to aid in the shooting investigation, BCI spokeswoman Jill Del Greco said Tuesday. Police and BCI declined to comment on what provoked the officer to fire.

The Strongsville officer attempted to stop a van driven by Evans about 2:30 a.m. on Pearl Road for an alleged traffic violation, according to Del Greco.

“The suspect did not comply, and the officer engaged in a pursuit,” she said.
