Suspect hurt in officer-involved-shooting in Salem

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- A suspect was injured when a Salem police officer shot him during a pursuit Thursday afternoon. 

Salem police said officers were trying to contact Zachary Miles Pevey about a warrant but he fled from officers. Pevey hit a patrol car with his Ford pickup truck so police stopped following him.

Officers found Pevey again contacted him in a driveway in the 5500 block of State Street. He didn't listen to police and backed his truck into Officer Jesse Rios' car. 

Rios fired his gun and hit Pevey, who was taken to the hospital for treatment. 

No officers were injured. 

Rios has been placed on administrative leave per protocol. Oregon State Police and the Marion County District Attorney's Office will be investigating.
