VIDEO: Ohio Officer Shot, Suspect Hit by Police SUV

A Newark, Ohio, police officer was shot and a suspect hit by a police vehicle during a high-risk warrant service operation Wednesday.

Newark Police Chief Steven Sarver told the Columbus Dispatch the incident began when officers from the city’s special-operations group attempted to make an arrest using a warrant at a residence on Union St. just after noon.

The man inside recently had been released from federal prison, where he had served time for counterfeiting. He was suspected of printing phony bills again in the residence.

While officers were getting ready to approach the house, the man came outside and drove off.

Several uniformed and plainclothes officers tried to box his car in to arrest him, and the man jumped out of the car and fired a revolver at police, striking the one officer. He then ran across a parking lot.

A short pursuit followed, and as police closed in, the man turned and pointed a gun at a plainclothes detective following in an unmarked SUV, Sarver said. The detective rammed the man with his vehicle.

Officer Jarrod Conley was shot in his left arm and is expected to recover. The suspect, 27-year-old Randall Hutchison, was also injured. WBNS-10TV reports his condition has not been released.

NBC4 Columbus reports that the suspect had repeatedly told associated that he would rather die than go back to prison.

"We had previous information that this suspect would kill a police officer and that he wouldn't go back to jail," said Chief Steven Sarver, of the Newark Police Department. "He told one of our own officers that he knew how he was going to die and it would be by being shot by a police officer."

Well he didn't get shot but I bet his ribs are hurting pretty good. I hope the officer recovers quickly and gets back on the job. Great response on this fool by his brother officers. I bet that young lady is quite traumatized by an idiot with a gun running by then seeing the officer get shot. I hope she is okay also.

Perhaps firearms are a bit too easy for a convicted federal felon to obtain. My prayers to Officer Conley for a speedy recovery. I hope the suspect was held without bond and when convicted is allowed to finish his federal time in a State Prison.

This is a confusing title, when I read it, I thought the officer who was reported shot was also suspected of being hit by the SUV....

Glad to hear the officer will be ok. As for the p.o.s. we should accomodate him due to his statement. it would save the taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars to let this p.o.s. die.

Didn't Chris Christie & Krispy Kream Crew sign stringent gun laws last year. Damn how did that thug get a gun. LOL Sure didn't want to go back inside. I'm sure he has to put the panties back on when he's back home. He should be given the new middle name of Twat. Because that's what he is & will be once again.
