MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a fugitive after a Missoula police officer fired gunshots through the back of his car window as he slammed into a car full of U.S. marshals.

The Missoulian reports (https://bit.ly/1MncdIc ) the 25-year-old suspect, Olajide Fletcher, was treated for glass that got into his eye, but no other injuries were reported in the Thursday incident.
