"At the end of the pursuit, the suspect put the stolen vehicle in reverse and rammed into the patrol car which is felonious assault to a police officer," state police said on Twitter. "The deputy then discharges his duty weapon and as a result, the suspect died at the scene from the injuries."

The deputy wasn’t injured. State police will investigate the shooting and submit a report to the Eaton County prosecutor.
