LIMA, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a 19-year-old man is hospitalized after being shot by a state trooper during an altercation following a traffic stop on a western New York road.

The trooper pulled over a vehicle around 11 p.m. Wednesday on Routes 5 and 20 in the Livingston County town of Lima (LY’-muh), 20 miles south of Rochester. Police say the driver, Tyshawn Jones of Brooklyn, got out of his car and attacked the trooper.

State police Capt. Kevin Reilly says the trooper then fired three shots, hitting Jones in the shoulder and abdomen.

The trooper, who hasn’t been identified, was treated at Strong Memorial Hospital for a fractured eye socket, concussion and bruises. State police say Jones is being treated at the hospital for injuries that aren’t life-threatening.
