BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - An 18-year-old man faces four felonies and a misdemeanor after he was shot by a Bismarck police officer while allegedly trying to hit the officer with a stolen vehicle.

Miguel Stubing of Mandan was charged Tuesday with theft of property, fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, reckless endangerment and reckless driving.

Police say Stubing ignored verbal commands and drove toward an officer who was responding to reports of a vehicle stolen out of Mandan early Saturday.

Court documents show the officer fired five times at the vehicle to protect himself. The vehicle fled the scene and was later stopped by officers in Emmons County.

Stubing was taken to a hospital with two gunshot wounds. He’s being held in the Burleigh County Detention Center on a $100,000 cash-only bond.
