The Scott County Sheriff says Davenport police responded to a hit-and-run Wednesday where a vehicle hit two cars. A patrol car tried to stop the suspect vehicle, but it drove through a yard, hitting a building and a third car.
Investigators say officers tried to apprehend the driver at an intersection when the incident escalated and an officer fired two shots. The man was taken to a local hospital, then to University Hospitals in Iowa City where he’s in critical condition.
No name was released. The officer is on administrative leave pending the investigation of the shooting.
