Seat Pleasant police investigating after cop fires at vehicle

Seat Pleasant Police are looking for a vehicle that they say an officer fired at on Dade Street on Thursday afternoon.

Police initially indicated that the driver had tried to run down the officer - but they back off later, stressing that the investigation was still underway.

"What we have here is a very intense situation. The scene is still active even at this late hour," said Seat Pleasant Police Chief Devan Martin.

Around 3:20 p.m., an officer conducted a traffic stop. But when he approached the vehicle, the driver took off.

The driver took multiple turns before arriving in a dead on Dade Street.

At that point, the officer gave "loud, verbal commands."

When he refused, the officer fired at the vehicle, but the driver sped away.

According to police, a gun was recovered near the scene, and police are trying to determine whether it was connected with the incident.
