EUCLID, Ohio — A 19-year-old driving a suspected stolen vehicle was shot in the leg by a Euclid police officer during a traffic stop on Wednesday, while a 14-year-old was arrested and a 16-year-old suspected believed to be armed and dangerous was at large before later turning himself in.
According to Euclid police, the incident took place at 12:30 p.m. when officers located and stopped a suspected stolen Hyundai Sonata on Fox Avenue at East 222nd Street. The stop resulted in an officer shooting a 19-year-old in the leg, with the teen transported to a local hospital with what is believed to be a non-life-threatening injury.
A Euclid detective received a non-gunshot-related injury to his leg and was transported to a local hospital for treatment during the stop. Ohio's Bureau of Criminal Investigation confirmed to 3News that it has been called to investigate the shooting.
A 14-year-old passenger was also taken into custody without incident. Meanwhile, a 16-year-old suspect believed to be armed and dangerous fled the scene, but officials said he has since "peacefully" surrendered at the Euclid Police Department while being escorted by a family member. It is not believed any other suspects are on the loose.
