NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — Shots were fired and a man was wounded during a police chase on Staten Island.
Two Detectives and a Police Officer from the Staten Island Gang Squad stopped a man driving a 2012 Toyota Camry on Manor Road, near North Gannon Avenue. As the driver attempted to flee the scene he pinned a detective in between a pair of cars and was seen reaching for a weapon, according to authorities.
One of the officers fired and hit the suspect in the torso. The wounded man kept driving before crashing into another vehicle and a utility, police said. He then attempted to flee on foot, but was eventually apprehended by the Gang Squad.
