PITTSBURGH — A city police officer shot a man in the face after a car chase in which police said the suspect's vehicle rammed a police cruiser.
The chase began when police responded to a report of shots fired early Friday and found two vehicles speeding away from the scene. Police chased and stopped both vehicles, but they sped away in different directions as the officers got out of their car.
The driver was taken to a hospital where he was listed in critical but stable condition. The passenger was taken into custody but was not immediately identified, police said.
