A juvenile was shot by a railroad police officer Sunday night in Elkhart County.
The juvenile was shot after a short vehicle pursuit shortly after 11 p.m. Sunday, according to Indiana State Police.
An Elkhart Police officer reportedly witnessed traffic violations and attempted a traffic stop that led to the pursuit. A short time later the vehicle came to a stop in the yard of a residence at County Roads 20 and 100, where a Norfolk Southern Railroad police officer shot the driver as they attempted to flee again.
The driver was treated for a serious but non-life threatening injury and the investigation is underway. The juvenile’s name has not been released.
