Hartford police officer shot during foot chase
Published: 11/11/09, 7:05 AM EDT

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Hartford police say a city officer investigating a series of burglaries was shot during an early morning foot chase with a fleeing suspect, who was caught and arrested by other officers.

Police say the officer was shot in the arm and leg shortly after 12:30 a.m. Wednesday and is in stable condition. His name hasn't been released.

Authorities identified the suspect as 26-year-old Dwayne Powell of Hartford. They say he was injured during the arrest and hospitalized. His injuries weren't disclosed, but police say early reports that Powell was shot were wrong.

Sgt. Robert Davis said he did not know if Powell had an attorney.

Police say the series of events began when the officer approached Powell at a street corner in the city's north end.

I sincerely wish and pray that the suspects injuries are life threatening. Why do dumb crooks repeatedly fall into a nightstick?

I HATE it when that happens. Sometimes, those stairs are slippery and those car doors swing open violently all on their own.
