One person dead after police chase - Newstalk ZB

20 police cars were involved in the chase which ended on our largest motorway resulting in the theif ditching his car and taking a truck driver hostage.

At this point its unknown if the dead person is the theif or the hostage.

Im banking of the truck driver if it was the police first on scene, as opposed to NZ Armed Defenders Sqad (equivalent to SWAT).

Regular police only have 1 day firearms training per year and shoot 25rounds out of a Glock.

Very scary, it means in 2 years shooting ive shot more than 160 times more rounds at the range compared to a police officer. I certainly wouldnt want them charging in with guns to rescue me.
