SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) — Authorities say a police officer in Montgomery County shot and wounded an SUV driver who had been ramming a vehicle that someone else was in.
Authorities said in a statement that a man called 911 Sunday evening, saying someone was ramming his car with an SUV at the Stoneymill Square shopping center at the corner of Veirs Mill Road and Randolph Road.
Police say a responding officer shot the unidentified SUV driver. The driver was taken to a hospital in serious condition. No other injuries were reported.
Police say the officer has been with the department for 10 years and, per standard procedure, is on paid administrative leave as the shooting is investigated.
It is unclear what prompted the initial altercation.
