Police shot a man who fled a traffic stop in a stolen sport utility vehicle and smashed into several cars downtown, including one containing four police officers, authorities said.
The driver was hit in the stomach and taken to Massachusetts General Hospital, said Boston Police Superintendent Robert Dunford. He said the four officers were examined at a hospital, and "They're fine."
The suspect, whose name was not immediately released, had fled a traffic stop a few blocks away before driving over a sidewalk and heading the wrong way on a one-way street, police said. He was shot around noon just outside a Registry of Motor Vehicles office and a subway station.
Police cornered the vehicle and several officers fired their guns because of the danger the situation posed to pedestrians and others on the street, Dunford said.
Adrian Corporan, 30, of Boston was at the registry when he saw police cars box in the vehicle and three officers with guns drawn approached the SUV. He said he saw two officers fire.
The suspect was in stable condition Tuesday afternoon, Dunford said. He faces charges of receiving a stolen motor vehicle, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, the SUV. Officer Mike McCarthy said it was not known if the suspect was armed.
