March 27, 2012

Indianapolis police say an officer shot a motorist who tried to run him over after a chase approaching 100 mph on city streets. The pursuit started Monday night when police tried to pull over a car traveling at high speeds near West 38th Street and Lafayette Road. Officers forced the car to stop, but the motorist then attempted to drive into one of the officers, who fired shots at the car. The wounded driver took off in the vehicle, crossing through a yard and returning to the street before officers were able to stop him again. Steven Wooden, 28, was taken to Wishard Memorial Hospital in stable condition with gunshot wounds to his right arm and left hand. No injuries were reported to police officers.
