Man shot by police after driving on Calif. airport tarmac

The Associated Press

PALM SPRINGS, California- A man drove his truck across two active runways at the Palm Springs International Airport, broke a lock on a plane door and tried to run over an officer before he was arrested.

Even after the man, dressed only in underwear and a shirt, crashed his truck in the yard of a nearby home and had been shot multiple times by police on Sunday, he still refused to surrender until a police dog subdued him, police spokesman Sgt. John Booth said.

The suspect, identified as Michael Broderick, was taken to Desert Regional Medical Center, where he was in critical condition with several gunshot wounds Sunday night, Booth said.

Broderick was booked for investigation of attempting to kill an officer. The man underwent drug tests, but the results would not be available for several weeks, Booth said.

Officers tried unsuccessfully to negotiate with Broderick, who kept asking that they kill him, Booth said.
