Suspect shot, trooper injured in SD pursuit

SIOUX FALLS, S.D.— An officer shot and wounded a woman early Wednesday after she ran over a South Dakota Highway Patrol trooper, critically injuring him, and then sped away, authorities said.
Neither the patrol nor the state attorney general's office released certain details about the incident, including the name of the suspect and the name and law enforcement agency of the officer who shot her.
The suspect sped away and led law enforcement officers, including members of the Lincoln County Sheriff's Department, on a brief chase. An officer whom authorities hadn't publicly identified shot the suspect, and she was apprehended less than a mile from the initial crash site.
