OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Documents relating to an Olympia officer-involved shooting that injured two suspects have been released.

The Olympian reports (https://bit.ly/1MXe73B) Olympia Officer Ryan Donald shot and injured theft suspects Andre Thompson and Bryson Chaplin May 21.

According to the documents, employees at a Safeway grocery store reported an attempted theft.

Donald said he hadn’t responded to the store but began looking for suspects in the area when he encountered two men matching the provided description. He claims he shot the men after they attacked him with a skateboard and one tried to take his gun.

Thompson told a detective that neither he nor Chaplin had stopped at a store that evening and that they hadn’t used their skateboards as weapons.

Documents say Thompson was shot once, and Chaplin sustained multiple gunshot wounds.
