WARREN (WWJ) – A Warren police officer is hospitalized… after responding to a crime scene overnight.
Police were called to reports of a fight at a home on Continental near Loraine. When police arrived at the home they say there were as many as five or six people fighting — and one person had a gun.
That’s when authorities say four of the suspects tried to take off … and an officer was pinned between the suspect’s vehicle and his police car. That officer fired off three shots at the vehicle … the driver rushed away, but quickly crashed into a stop sign.
Police were able to arrest him. Four people were arrested in connection with a recent armed robbery.
The officer is hospitalized, but is expected to recover.
