Prosecutor: SBPD shooting justified

ST. JOSEPH CO., Ind. -- The St. Joseph County Prosecutor's Office said South Bend police were justified in shooting a man who led officers on a high speed chase.

37-year-old Joseph Stambaugh rammed two police cars.

It happened about two weeks ago.

They say he nearly hit an officer with his car before he crashed in front of Perley Primary Center.

That's when police shot him seven times.

Stambaugh is charged with resisting police and cocaine possession.

He is still in the hospital.
