Around 10:15 p.m. Sunday, officers spotted a Chevrolet Impala matching the description of a vehicle involved in a shooting a little over an hour earlier. A pursuit began. After about three minutes, the Impala crashed into a squad car and caught fire.
Two suspects were arrested, and a third ran from the scene.
The officer in the squad car had minor injuries to his arm, and a second officer was cut trying to free the first officer from the car.
The shooting victim is in serious but stable condition.
