Police Capt. Shayna Ray says officers found a gun at the scene, but not in the SUV.

The man’s and the officer’s name haven’t been released. The shooting is being investigated.

    the police need to do more of that. They don’t want to stop running let the lead fly. I bet the thugs would maybe think twice before they try to run with their pants hanging off their a$$.

    I fully agree with “Mr Bojangles”. Any officer who has a suspect run away from him should have the right to shoot him and put him down for good. After all, nice people do not run from the law.
