State Patrol trooper shot in Walla Walla, suspect in custody


WALLA WALLA, Wash. (AP) — A Washington State Patrol trooper was shot and seriously hurt Thursday in Walla Walla, Washington, according to law enforcement officials.

At about 5:20 p.m. Thursday, someone rammed the unnamed trooper’s vehicle and then shot him, Trooper Sarah Clasen told The Tri-City Herald.

The trooper remained conscious and alert and drove himself a little more than a mile and a half (2.4 kilometers) to Providence St. Mary Medical Center, Clasen said.

Clasen said a suspect in the incident was in custody by 6 p.m. and that the State Patrol had contact with the suspect earlier in the day.

An investigation is ongoing. No further information about the trooper’s condition was immediately available.
