SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a suspect shot by Salem police had backed his pickup into the patrol car of the officer who fired.

Lt. Dave Okada says the suspect, 40-year old Zackary Miles Pevey, was taken to a hospital for treatment. The officer, Jesse Rios, was not injured.

Okada says the incident began Thursday afternoon when officers tried to stop Pevey regarding a warrant.

Pevey fled in his Ford pickup, striking a patrol car in the getaway. Officers pursued but stopped for safety reasons.

Other officers later found Pevey and tried to arrest him in a driveway.

Okada says Pevey placed the truck in reverse and went toward Rios, prompting the officer to fire.

The Oregon State Police will investigate the shooting.
