EVANSVILLE — An Evansville police detective shot a man Thursday who tried to run him over in a stolen vehicle, a spokesman said.
Two plain-clothes detectives were conducting surveillance Thursday morning on a Dodge Charger that had been reported stolen, Sgt. Nick Winsett said.
After the vehicle became stuck on a snow embankment, the detectives went to confront the suspect. The car accelerated off the embankment toward one of the e detectives, prompting the shooting, Winsett said. The shot struck the man in a shoulder, the Evansville Courier & Press reported.
After other officers arrived, they used a Taser to subdue the man while he struggled with them, Winsett said. He was taken by ambulance to a hospital for treatment and is expected to survive.
No officers were injured.
