Columbus police say officers have shot a teenage suspect after a protracted chase.
Authorities say the boy's actions forced officers to discharge their weapons.
They had been called by a woman who said the suspect was in her residence in northeast Columbus with a gun. When his vehicle was stopped by police, he forced a female driver from behind the wheel and fled. Officers followed.
The suspect drove into a dead-end parking lot, and then took off on foot into a dark, wooded ravine near Stone Gate Circle and Olde Ridenhower Road. Police say officers fired during an exchange in the woods.
The male was treated and transported to Grant Medical Center.
