A man who was shot to death by cops in Germantown last night started his evening on a stolen ATV and ended it in a stolen delivery driver's car, according to police.
Two uniformed officers in an unmarked car spotted LeSean Rinehart, 28, on a stolen Yamaha ATV around 11 p.m. Saturday on Nedro Street near Kemble, said Lt. Ray Evers, police spokesman.
When the cops tried to initiate a stop, Rinehart allegedly fled on foot and both officers pursued him in kind around the corner to Kemble Street, Evers said.
There, Rinehart saw a 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer that a deliveryman had left running and unattended while he delivered food to a nearby house, according to police. Rinehart jumped in that car and drove forward, striking one of the officers on foot, police said. That cop, in turn, fired two shots at Rinehart, Evers said.
