JEROME COUNTY, Idaho — A Jerome Police officer was shot in the face and a suspect was wounded Monday night after a high-speed chase following an attempted traffic stop near the Jerome city limits.

Authorities say Jerome Police Officer Dennis Clark attempted to stop Chris Taylor, 29, for traffic violations near the east side of Jerome. Taylor failed to stop and led officers on a five-mile, high-speed pursuit that ended when Taylor lost control of his car and rolled the vehicle into a farm field.

Three Jerome Police officers and one Jerome County Sheriff's deputy were involved in the pursuit during which gunfire was exchanged between Taylor and two police officers. Both Taylor and Officer Clark suffered gunshot wounds. Their injuries are described as non-life threatening.
