"After leading police on a 14-minute chase, during which he held the driver at gunpoint, an armed Mark Morasky was shot as he was running from the truck toward the police perimeter and an occupied office building. Before he made a break for it, Morasky, a 33-year-old Saratoga two-striker on parole for violent crimes, told officers and the driver that he would die rather than go back to prison," said the Santa Clara County DA's Office in a statement.
