Associated Press

CROCKERY TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A Michigan police officer has been struck and killed by a car driven by two suspected bank robbers who were later shot to death in a shootout with police.

Michigan State Police Sgt. John Tillman says the officer with the Walker police department was killed Thursday when the suspects crashed in Ottawa County's Crockery Township, about 15 miles northwest of Grand Rapids.

Tillman says it wasn't immediately clear if the Walker officer was inside or outside a patrol car when he was struck.

He says the two men in a sport utility vehicle fired at police patrol cars during the 10-mile chase that reached speeds above 100 mph.

Both men were pronounced dead at the scene. A shotgun and M-4 rifle were recovered.
