MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - An update to a story FOX10 News first told you about Saturday, June 15 on FOX10 News at 9 p.m .
According to authorities, 16-year-old Edna Harris III lost control of a stolen car during a high speed chase with an officer.
She was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. Harris was the only person in the vehicle, according to authorities.
The Mobile Police Department said, before the deadly chase, Harris robbed a man near Bloodgood Street, stealing his money and his car.
They said the robbery victim knew Harris' first name.
Some neighbors on Bloodgood said they believe the car was stolen near a senior housing center.
Folks like Earl Wilson, who lives at the housing center, are tight-lipped about the case.
"I'm not going to tell you all of that. I will get people in trouble in there," said Wilson.
Police said officers spotted the stolen vehicle minutes after it was reported in the area of Government and Broad Streets.
MPD saidafter Harris refused to stop, a high speed chase ensued down Government Street.
"The officer is actually able to get the vehicle stopped several times as they went down Government but the driver would wait for the officer to approach the car and then drive off," said Mobile Police Department Spokesperson Cpl. Chris Levy.
Wilson said there was a lot of police activity at the center yesterday which he says is a rare sight.
"There is no problems here period. There is no problems in the building. I didn't even know that was going on until I found out yesterday evening," said Wilson.
Latanya Kinard also said Bloodgood Street is usually pretty quiet.
"To hear about someone that young dying and that happening is sad. It's shocking that it was something that was over here because like I said, it's different from what it used to be," said Kinard.
