Deputy fires at burglary suspect who tried to run him over
Wednesday, January 4, 2012

RICHLAND COUNTY (WIS) - Richland County deputies are searching for a man they say tried to run over a deputy after burglarizing a house in Northeast Columbia.

Deputies were called to the area of Greengate Dr. near Two Notch Rd. around 2:00 p.m. to investigate a burglary in progress.

When deputies arrived, one of two men inside the home tried to run, but was quickly arrested.

The other man got away in an SUV and, after a short chase, tried to run over a deputy. The deputy opened fire on the suspect vehicle as it was trying to run him over, but he got away, according to a spokesperson with the department.

Deputies have a perimeter set up in the area and are using helicopters and K-9 units to try to catch the man.

If you know anything about this incident, you are urged to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
