Gunshots on Route 444: Policeman claims fired in self-defense

An initial investigation into the shooting incident on Route 444 indicates that the shooter was a policeman who was attacked after he tried to pull a man over for reckless driving. The officer said the driver "tried to take me off the road."


After the car was pulled over, its passengers allegedly tried to attack the officer. He fired warning shots in the air, and when the passengers did not stop he shot one of them in the foot, injuring him moderately. (Raanan Ben-Zur)
