TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - Pierce County sheriff’s deputies shot and injured two people after a pursuit involving a stolen car.

The News Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2mH6oMo ) that the deputies shot at the couple early Tuesday after they drove at the officers.

A deputy spotted a stolen Ford driving recklessly at about midnight and tried to pull it over.

The driver sped away and a chase ensued.

The driver lost control at one point and went off the road. Det. Sgt. Gary Sanders says the Ford ended up facing the deputies.

The deputies ordered the people out of the car, but the driver moved toward the deputies and they opened fire.

The driver and a female passenger were shot. They were taken to a hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
