Police said they shot and killed a 65-year-old man on the Belt Parkway on Thursday after he approached officers with a gun.

The NYPD said an officer just after 4 p.m. stopped a gray Jeep Cherokee that was traveling eastbound on the parkway near the Bay Street exit.

As the officer approached the vehicle, according to police, he sped away. The officer chased after him and moved her unmarked car in front of his Jeep.

He then allegedly rear-ended the officer’s car near the Verrazzano Bridge and continued on the parkway.
