Gunfire toward police site leads to chase, wounded suspect

November 30, 2018

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a man suspected of shooting at a building that houses an Ohio police department was wounded when he exchanged gunfire with responding officers after a chase.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office says the suspect fired shots Friday toward the administrative building in Clay Township, a few miles northwest of Dayton, and then fled in a vehicle.

That led to a pursuit, which ended when authorities used a tire-deflation device to stop the vehicle. They say the man then fired again, and officers returned fire.

No officers were hurt during the incident.

The wounded suspect was taken to a hospital. Authorities didn’t immediately share information about him publicly, including his condition and his identity.
