St. David Moranz with the Citrus Heights Police Department said the woman in her 20s rammed into a police car when officers tried to pull her over around 11:30 a.m. Sunday in Fair Oaks.

He said she took off, leading the officers on a high-speed chase in which she drove on the wrong side of the road.

The chase ended when she rammed into another police car. Moranz said two officers in that car feared for their safety and fired several rounds into the suspect's car, fatally striking her.

The Sacramento Sheriff's department is investigating the shooting because it happened in an unincorporated area of the county.

This incident was the second shooting reported over the weekend. Early Sunday, authorities said two Sacramento County Sheriff's deputies shot and killed an armed man near Antelope Road.
