WINDHAM, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut State Police say a man shot by officers following a car chase through several towns and on Interstate 395 has died.

The suspect in the chase that started at about 11 a.m. Wednesday in Norwich has been identified as 39-year-old Kyron Marcell Sands, of Hartford.

State police Sands shot at police in Norwich during a “suspicious incident,” then stole a vehicle and was chased to Windham, where police used tire deflation devices to stop his vehicle.

No officers or civilians were injured.

It’s about 15 miles from Norwich to Windham.
