A suspect in a stolen car struck and killed one police officer and critically injured another during a wild chase that temporarily shut down a municipal airport in Chandler before ending at a car dealership in Gilbert, authorities said Friday.

Officials say the suspect crashed his vehicle and then fled on foot and stole a truck from a Ford dealership at SanTan Motorplex, hitting two officers and one of the dealership janitors. One of them was Officer Christopher Farrar, who later died from his injuries.
