OT - shell script to kill a process

My Unix scripting knowledge leaves a bit to be desired, so I thought  
I'd ask here for some help.

I have a Vise installer for OS X that needs to check for and kill our  
own process if it's running. The installer will be authenticated when  
running. I need a shell script that I can execute from within the  
installer that will determine, by name, if a given process is  
running, and then kill it dead if so. Can someone help?
