The man was spotted in Wyomissing Borough around 8 p.m., and police tried to pull his vehicle over. There was a short pursuit after he refused to stop, state police said.

State police said the man then drove into the backyard of a home in the 900 block of Spring Street, where his vehicle became disabled.

According to state police, the man had a rifle and failed to obey their commands, so officers from multiple departments opened fire.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
