Police pursuit ends in fiery crash

cotto PA

A police chase that looks like something out of a James Cameron film took place Tuesday 24 November in Pennsylvania that ended with an officer shot in the shoulder as well as a car and school bus engulfed in flames. From ABC 6:A Pennsylvania State Trooper shot Tuesday on I-676 in Center City Philadelphia has been released from the hospital.With a cheer of "Let's go Eagles," Trooper Patrick Casey, 31, left Hahnemann University Hospital late Wednesday morning."Thank you everyone for all their prayers and support. Happy to be going home for Thanksgiving. I'm feeling much better." Casey said as he walked away from the hospital to a waiting car.17-year-old Giovanni Cotto, has been charged, as an adult, in the shooting.


He is charged with Criminal Attempt to Murder of the 1st Degree (3 Counts), Aggravated Assault (3 Counts), Assault of Law Enforcement Officer (3 Counts), Simple Assault (3 Counts), Fleeing and Attempting to Elude, Recklessly Endangering Another Person, Possessing Instruments of Crime, and several Firearms Act Violations.He was formally arraigned by video Wednesday morning, and bail was set at $3 million.The 17-year-old suspect returned to State Police Barracks in Wynnefield Heights Tuesday night after being treated for injuries sustained in the incident.When being brought out of the barracks, Cotto told Action News he had "not a thing" to say about the shooting.See the full story from ABC 6.

From PoliceOne:... The teen and a second person who was in the car when it was stopped were in custody as police searched for two more people following the midmorning crash on a downtown highway, authorities said.When police first stopped the car, they asked the four people inside to exit the vehicle, but one of the suspects jumped back in and took off, investigators said.Trooper Patrick R. Casey, providing backup, pursued the car, at one point getting in front of it to try to force a stop, authorities said. The suspect instead rammed Casey's cruiser, then pulled alongside him and opened fire, Raykovitz said.The suspect then crashed into the school bus, causing both vehicles to burst into flames. The bus was empty except for the driver, who escaped unharmed. The suspect again started shooting, while Casey returned fire, authorities said.See the full article from PoliceOne.com.[mwi-cat-listing cat="94" ppp="4" cols="4" desc="false" type="view" btn_color="black" ]
