PALM SPRINGS, Calif. -- Police say a Camp Pendleton Marine was shot and killed after striking an officer with his car in a parking garage in the California desert.
The Palm Springs Police Department said in a statement that the Marine repeatedly ignored orders to stop after being approached by officers on bike patrol around 2 a.m. Saturday.
The department said Monday that one of the officers partially climbed into the passenger window to stop the car, but the Marine accelerated, striking the other officer.
Authorities say he kept driving with the officer hanging out the window until the car crashed near the garage's exit.
Both officers were treated and released for unspecified injuries. They have been placed on administrative leave while the department investigates.
The Desert Sun (http://mydesert.co/UkHMTr) identified the Marine as Cpl. Allan DeVillena II.
