Police shooting injures female suspect

If you live near the 800 block of McBride, you may have heard a sound like a gunshot early Monday morning. Canadian Press has the scoop on what happened:

NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. — A woman is recovering from what police in New Westminster, B.C. are calling a minor injury after she was shot in the shoulder as officers tried to arrest four people in a suspected stolen car.

The incident happened at around 1 a.m. Monday morning when two police cruisers tried to box in the possibly stolen car in the drive-thru of a fast food restaurant in the 800 block of McBride Boulevard.

The suspect vehicle may have tried to smash through the two cruisers in what police describe as “evasive action,” prompting officers to fire at least one shot, injuring a woman passenger in the car.

She was taken to hospital for treatment and then returned to police custody.
