Sherie Allen says she was driving her daughter to a youth rally when she saw the motorcycle and police rush by the other way. 

"I made eye contact with this this boy. I don't know, I just don't know, I just connected with him. I felt sorry for him," she said. "He took off running. They were done chasing. They had had enough. And I've seen cops that way, and it's sad," she said. 

However, Allen admits she didn't see the end of the chase, and what the suspect did in the moments before police shot him. 

Patty, says the situation will be thoroughly reviewed.
