Traffic Stop Ends With One Person Dead and Second In Handcuffs
It was a scary scene on Outer Hammond Street in Bangor last night as a driver ran from his car into the woods, and shots rang out. Police say the suspect was killed in an officer-related shooting.
Initial reports, according to the BDN, suggest the car had been reported stolen, but there's been no confirmation. Police pulled the car over near Leadbetter's store Tuesday night. The driver got out of the car and then bolted into the nearby woods.
Police gave chase and witnesses say they heard about 10 shots ring out. Officials confirm that the suspect was killed in what they term an officer-related shooting. There's no word, at this point, about whether the suspect had a weapon or fired at police. A woman who was also in the vehicle was led away in handcuffs.
We'll update this story as more details become available.
