MSP, Flint Police Chase Leads to Double Shooting
A police chase early Thursday morning turned into a double shooting in which the two suspects were injured.
According to WNEM, the shooting happened at Raspberry Lane and Greenbrooke Lane in Flint around 2:30 a.m. The incident began when the Michigan State Police tried to pull over a vehicle for a traffic violation. The 2004 Buick Rendezvous fled from police and during the five minute chase, rammed the trooper's vehicle. A second MSP vehicle and Flint Police unit joined the pursuit. Police were able to stop the Buick, however, the driver put the car in reverse and tried to run down a trooper. Police then fired into the car hitting both suspects. An 18-year-old Flint man was shot in the wrist and a 36-year-old Flint man was hit in the thigh and abdomen. Both were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
All four state troopers involved in the incident have been put on administrative leave pending investigation.
