DOVER, Del. (AP) - A judge has sealed documents related to an officer-involved shooting in Dover.

The Delaware State News reports (https://bit.ly/2eMYpKy) Dover Police Detective Kevin Streadwick asked a court to close the warrants after the Wednesday shooting of 25-year-old Jamera Fisher.

Authorities say Fisher, who was wanted on a failure to appear warrant, drove a vehicle toward police before a Delaware Probation and Parole officer shot him. Fisher sustained non-life threatening injuries.

According to the court order, the records were closed because they could influence or stifle witness information and hamper the ongoing investigation.

Fisher has been charged with first-degree reckless endangering, possession of a deadly weapon and numerous other offenses. It’s unclear if he has an attorney.

The Probation and Parole officer involved in the shooting has been placed on administrative leave.
