ATLANTA (CBS46) -

A man died Friday afternoon in a crash after he was shot by a trooper following a chase in Atlanta.

The chase began after an Atlanta police officer pursued the man in a stolen car, according to a spokesperson with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. The Atlanta police officer asked for help from Georgia State Patrol, who were unsuccessful getting the man to stop.

Officials say while trying to escape from authorities, the man ultimately crashed into an Atlanta patrol car. At this point, the trooper shot the man, which is when he crashed into a vehicle at a home on Doane Street.

The GBI spokesperson says they're still trying to determine if the man died from the crash, or from the gunshot from the trooper.

No officers were injured in the incident.
