(AP) PHOENIX - Phoenix authorities say a 5-year-old boy was found uninjured in a car's front passenger seat after police fired at the vehicle and fatally shot the driver Monday night.

Sgt. Trent Crump says the motorist evaded a traffic stopafter he appeared to be impaired.

Crump says officers later shot at the car and killed the driver after the vehicle struck a brick wall at a home and the man tried to drive off - first in one direction towards officers and then in another direction toward a different officer.

The identity of the fatally shot driver has not been released.
