An investigation into heroin sales ended with the suspect being shot when he tried to use his vehicle to run over a member of the St. Clair County Drug Task Force. The incident began shortly before 11:00 last night, when the Drug Task Force requested the assistance of a marked Port Huron Police squad car to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle of a person suspected of selling heroin. The suspect eventually stopped his vehicle. When DTF Officers exited their vehicles to make contact with the suspect, a 24 year old man from Port Huron, he used his vehicle in an attempt to run over a DTF Officer. Two shots were fired into the vehicle by two members of the Drug Task Force, striking the suspect. The suspect was transported by Tri-Hospital EMS to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Port Huron. No member of the Drug Task Force suffered serious injury in the incident. A joint Internal Affairs investigation is being conducted by the Sheriff’s Office and Port Huron Police Department. Michigan State Police has also been called in as an outside agency to conduct an investigation regarding the shooting.
