DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Dallas police shot and killed a woman who allegedly rammed a stolen vehicle into a police car.

It happened near an apartment complex in the 4700 block of East Side Avenue around 5:00 a.m.

Police said officers on foot had approached the vehicle "giving loud verbal commands," which the people inside ignored.

The driver started the stolen vehicle and backed up into the patrol car.  Then the suspect drove forward striking a fence.

As the suspect reversed the vehicle again, two uniformed officers fired their guns and shot the suspect.  She was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The passenger was not seriously hurt and is facing felony criminal charges.

No officers were hurt.

Police would not take any questions during a news conference Wednesday evening.
