Upon arriving at the scene, Officer Napier encountered the victim who said the robber fled to a nearby apartment complex. Officer Napier encountered a Black Mustang that was attempting to pull away from the apartment complex. Suspicious of the driver, Officer Napier attempted to get the tag of the vehicle when the driver fired into the rear window of the Police cruiser. “He almost got me,” Officer Napier told CBS46.
“One of our officers came face-to-face with that individual not knowing it was the [suspected] person at that time,” says BPD in a social media post. “That person shot at our officer as he was pulling away in his patrol car. The bullet struck the back driver’s side door window inches from the officer’s head.”
Police gave chase after the suspect drove off and the suspect eventually crashed. He then fled on foot. A K-9 and helicopter search were unable to locate the suspect.
