Detroit police say a driver is dead after fleeing from officers and crashing into a tree on the city's east side.

Police say they responded to a call that a man was threatening a woman with a gun. Police say a person matching the description of the suspect was spotted early Wednesday, but the person sped away. Police say they chased the driver for about six minutes before the crash.

No other injuries were reported. The driver's name wasn't immediately released.

The crash and the circumstances of the initial call to police are under investigation.
