SAN PABLO, Calif. – A juvenile suspect is in critical condition Monday morning after being shot by police while trying to hit an officer with a stolen vehicle during a traffic stop, KTVU is reporting.
According to San Pablo Police investigators, the officer-involved shooting happened just before midnight near the intersection of Bush Avenue and Rumrill Boulevard.
San Pablo police officers were trying to stop a suspect in a stolen vehicle when the driver accelerated rapidly towards another officer who was standing outside his vehicle at the intersection.
The suspect’s vehicle hit the parked vehicle next to the officer, who opened fire, striking the suspect once, according to KTVU.
The juvenile male suspect was rushed to a local hospital where he remains in critical condition.
The officer whose vehicle was struck is being treated for his injuries.
Investigators urge drivers to avoid that intersection this morning as several blocks of both streets are blocked off.
Update: The scene has now been cleared.
