Suspect Shot During High Speed Pursuit

A man accused of stealing a pick up truck, led Highway Patrol Troopers on a high speed chase early Sunday evening.  Authorities say they set up a speed stick to stop the alleged truck thief but it only caused him to drive northbound in the southbound lane of i25. According to a written statement, troopers then rammed the pickup truck… causing the suspect to drive towards authorities who were on foot. Officers say they then shot the suspect who drove off the highway, ditched the truck and led police on a foot chase. The man is at Wyoming Regional Medical Center in Casper, where he is recovering from his injuries.
