PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — A man wanted for a probation violation is under arrest after leading state police on a chase near I-95 in Chester Tuesday afternoon. It all ended with the suspect being shot by a state trooper at the Highland Avenue ramp.
In a statement, authorities say a state trooper tried to initiate a traffic stop on a 2002 Ford sedan on I-95 southbound. When the vehicle didn’t stop, a pursuit ensued. Authorities say that when the sedan got off the highway at Exit 3, the car went over the median and tried to make a U-turn. The trooper then used his vehicle to stop the sedan from going back onto the highway.
Both cars came to a rest, and the trooper “discharged his weapon, striking the suspect in the lower leg,” authorities said.
