Ames police were involved in a shooting that happened about one o’clock this morning. Officers were trying to stop an erratic driver on South Duff Avenue near Airport Road. During the traffic stop, the driver got out of his vehicle, but then re-entered his vehicle and accelerated directly at the two officers.
The officers fired their weapons in order to stop the suspect’s advancing vehicle. The suspect was then airlifted to a Des Moines hospital for treatment. The names of the suspect and the two officers have not been released.
