Chapmanville – A suspect was injured when a Logan County Deputy Sheriff and Chapmanville police officer stopped him Tuesday morning in Chapmanville.

Officials confirmed the officer-involved shooting sent the suspect to the hospital.

The incident began when the officers pulled over an Ohio-licensed vehicle that had been reported stolen, the officials said.

The police stopped the vehicle on Main Street (State Route 10) in front of Advance Auto Parts.

After stopping the auto, the suspect attempted to flee, police said.

During the stop, the suspect attempted to flee with the city police officer clinging to the steering wheel from outside the vehicle.

As the driver maintained control of the auto, he allegedly attempted to run over the deputy.

That led to the deputy opening fire, which hit the driver.
