Police say the driver of the vehicle tried to "use the car as a weapon toward police," and that is when one officer fired one shot at the vehicle.

The passenger, Joshua Dyer, 34, was fatally struck by the bullet.

Cole has been charged with resisting law enforcement and operating a vehicle without a license.
