Louisville man accused of ramming police cars with stolen SUV charged with earlier shooting


A suspect in a stolen car who rammed several police cars and led officers on a chase has been charged with an earlier robbery and shooting, Louisville Metro Police said.

Police spotted D'Andre Osborne Thursday morning driving along South 26th Street in a GMC Envoy that had been reported stolen, according to an arrest report.

After several marked police cruisers surrounded the SUV at 26th and Chestnut streets, Osborne repeatedly rammed them, broke through the blockade and drove away, the report said.

During the ensuing pursuit, police said the Envoy crashed into fences and poles in the 2400 block of Chestnut Street before colliding with a large decorative rock that badly damaged the SUV.

Osborne, 20, who lives in the 2300 block of St. Louis Avenue, fled on foot but was soon found in a trash can in the 500 block of South 24th Street. The report said he was bleeding from injuries suffered in the crashes.

In addition to charges from the pursuit, police charged Osborne in connection with a Nov. 24 shooting. A police report said he forced his way into a woman's West Kentucky Street apartment armed with a handgun that day and attempted to rob her.

When she pulled out her own gun Osborne shot her in the back four times while two children were in the same room, the report said.

Osborne is charged with robbery, assault, trespass, fleeing police, auto theft, five counts of wanton endangerment, two counts of criminal mischief and operating a motor vehicle without a license.

A police report said Osborne is known by the alias "Crash."
