A car seen fleeing from the burglary of a stereo equipment store, with shots fired into the store windows, bolted away from a county traffic stop when the deputy approached on foot. About a mile and a half later, toward the Consolidated Tribes reservation border, that pursued car slammed head-on into a tribal police vehicle, killing all four occupants: April Scott-Kalama, Valerie Suppah, Sean Starr, and Grace Sybil Scott.
