A number of officers from around the area assisted in a chase that ended with a suspect being shot Wednesday morning.
The police chase ended by the Chase Bank at Lockhaven Drive NE and Inland Shores Way NE. The chase entered Keizer around 9 a.m. and involved a white Ford F250 pickup.
“About 9 a.m. Keizer officers were notified of a vehicular pursuit traveling into our jurisdiction,” Capt. Jeff Kuhns with the Keizer Police Department said on the scene. “The suspect vehicle was being pursued by the Salem Police Department.”
Kuhns noted a Keizer officer was advised to not actively engage in the pursuit.
“He advised a short time later shots were fired and the subject was down,” Kuhns said. “Medics were called in and one person was transported.”
Kuhns did not believe any officers were shot and didn’t know offhand if the suspect was armed or not.
Lt. Dave Okada with the SPD confirmed Salem officers had been involved with an officer-involved shooting.
