Vancouver officer involved shooting

Around 1 a.m. Thursday, Vancouver Police responded to reports of a disturbance at 704 Main Street involving a large number of individuals fighting, witnesses also reported at least one of the subjects had a gun. Officers responded to the area and while making contact with individuals alleged to be involved in the fight, officers heard multiple shots fired in the area of 7th/Broadway. Officers located a male with a gunshot wound to the foot. That individual refused medical treatment and his injuries are non-life threatening.

While attempting to locate the suspect involved in the shooting, officers were confronted by an armed suspect who ignored officer commands. One officer at the scene fired at the suspect, striking him. The suspect was transported to an area hospital with what appear to be non-life threatening injuries. The suspect's weapon was recovered and there are no outstanding suspects.
