Snow Shoe Incident
11/21/2013
 
 
 
A Police chase across two counties ends Thursday morning with Police shooting the driver along Interstate 80.  State Police say the man told them he wanted them to shoot him.  But why he ran in the first place is among the questions that are being investigated by Police at this hour.  The Police put down stop strips along Interstate 80 to try and stop the runaway driver and even after he ran over the second one he still drove several miles with flattened tires.  Finally, the suspect pulled over but when he got out of his vehicle the Police say he did not follow their orders to immediately surrender.  One officer shot the suspect in the arm and then when he still resisted he was tasered and taken into custody.  No Police were hurt and the suspect was in stable condition at the UPMC Altoona Hospital.
