GLENDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

Glendale police have identified the man killed in an officer-involved shooting on Thursday night.

Glendale Police spokeswoman Officer Tiffany Smith said Brandon Pequeno, 25, died after being shot by police at an apartment complex on the 5200 block of West Northern Avenue.

Smith said Pequeno and two others were in a white car that was being followed by a special fugitive task unit because investigators believed the car was stolen.

The police officers pinned the car in the parking lot of the apartment complex, said Smith. That's when the driver, Pequeno, began ramming other cars in an attempt to get away.

Three Mesa Police officers fired their guns at the car hitting Pequeno and a 17-year-old girl who was a passenger in the car.  Another passenger, a 25-year-old man, also in the car was not injured.  No officers were hurt.

The 17-year-old girl was taken to a hospital and is still in critical condition.  Her name has not been released.

According to Smith the East Valley task force involving U.S. Marshals Service, Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, Mesa Police Department, Chandler Police Department, and Tempe Police Department.
