A chase in Independence Monday morning ended with an officer's cruiser crashed into a mobile home and police fatally  shooting a male suspect.

The suspect was trying to steal an IPD car, officers said. 

"About the same time I heard the sirens they stopped and I heard a big crash," said a woman who was in the area. 

It happened before 11 a.m. in the unincorporated area of Blue Summit. Independence officials did not immediately say what led to the chase or the shooting.

Police did not release the name of the person who died.
