Richmond's mayor is calling for a review of police pursuits across jurisdictions after a local pastor was killed in a chase-related collision.
Mayor Dwight Jones says the chase by Henrico County police into the city was dangerous and "a tragic occurrence."
Jones said Thursday he supports law enforcement. But the mayor says he wants to ensure that there are no reckless pursuits that endanger bystanders.
Forty-four-year-old Anthony Taylor was killed Wednesday night when a vehicle fleeing county officers ran a stop sign and hit his vehicle. Taylor was the pastor of United House of Prayer for All People in Richmond.
Henrico police Col. Henry W. Stanley Jr. says the chase and what prompted it are under investigation.
