Fort Lauderdale, Fla. — The Pontiac closely resembled a stolen car. The driver led Fort Lauderdale police on a high-speed, two-county chase along Interstate 95 Friday night. During a "violent struggle," an officer's gun was fired, critically wounding the 15-year-old driver.

Turns out the car wasn't stolen, and the boy's family says he was shot in the back while he lay on the ground.
