They are accusing this brother of driving a stolen car. They say he tried to ram them with the car, so they shot and killed him. Here's the story as reported in the corporate media:
Stolen car suspect shot, killed by police in San Bernardino after chase through Colton
Wednesday, July 11, 2012
COLTON, Calif. (KABC) -- One person was killed and another was injured in an officer-involved shooting that spanned two Inland Empire cities.
Authorities say it all started at 2 a.m. in Colton, where an officer noticed a suspected stolen vehicle. When the officer tried to stop that vehicle, the suspects took off and drove into San Bernardino. That's when the officer-involved shooting occurred at Meridian and Mill streets.
One person was killed, and another person, a female, was rushed to an area hospital. There were some reports that the woman may be pregnant, but that has not been confirmed.
San Bernardino sheriff's investigators are now handling this case, but the shooting involved a Colton police officer.
The investigation is ongoing.
And here's a report from Loma Linda Patch:

A Rialto man in a stolen vehicle who allegedly rammed into Colton police cars in San Bernardino was fatally shot by at least one officer early Wednesday near Loma Linda, according to the coroner.
About 1:30 a.m. July 11, Colton police tried to stop a suspected stolen vehicle "but the driver failed to yield," the San Bernardino County coroner reported Thursday.
"The driver of the suspected stolen vehicle rammed the police cars and that resulted in an officer-involved shooting," the coroner reported. "The driver, Tremayne Marshawn Williams, a 27-year-old resident of Rialto, was pronounced dead at the scene on Mill Street near Meridian Avenue in the city of San Bernardino."
The neighborhood is west of Interstate 215 and north of Interstate 10, a few miles northwest of Loma Linda.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Homicide Division was investigating. An autopsy will be conducted later this week to determine the exact cause of death.
The District Attorney will have final say on whether the shooting was justified.
