THE BRONX - Police fired shots at a minivan during a high-speed chase in the Bronx that ended with the driver in handcuffs Tuesday.

According to authorities, 39-year-old Jason Henry failed to yield to a pedestrian near Morris Park Avenue and White Plains Road at around 5 p.m., and then took off as officers approached, hitting a parked car and driving onto a sidewalk. 

Cops say the van drove toward officers at one point, and that's when shots were fired, but Henry still didn't stop until he crashed into a telephone pole on Wyatt Street.
