SummaryThe man was driving the wrong way down the interstate. When cops tried to stop him, there was a high speed chase. When he stopped and got out of his van, he had a "high powered" rifle, and shot at police (unclear if anyone was hit, other than a K9). He was shot 3 times but not killed, and was conscious on his way to the hospital. The article states this is the second police shooting in a week, and the 9th time in 2 years within the county.
