An Ogden police officer opened fire at suspects in a stolen car when they allegedly tried to hit him with the vehicle on Thursday night.
The officer was treated for minor injuries; the suspects were uninjured.
According to Ogden police, the Utah Highway Patrol ended its pursuit of a stolen car shortly after 10 p.m. in the area of Washington Boulevard and 40th Street. Acting on a tip, Ogden officers located the car in an alley near 800 Kershaw St., and as two officers walked toward it, the driver hit the gas and tried to hit one of them.
The officer fired “multiple times,” according to a news release from the Ogden Police Department, striking the car — but the two suspects were not hit. They were taken into custody after a “brief search of the area.” The officer was treated at a local hospital and released.
The Weber County Attorney’s Office is investigating the shooting.
