A Jasper police officer was treated at Walker Baptist Medical Center Wednesday afternoon after being slightly injured in an incident in west Jasper.

Jasper Police Chief Connie Cooner Rowe said police were responding to the scene of a domestic violence issue and reports of a man with a weapon at an apartment complex near the intersection of Alabama Highway 69 South and Alabama Highway 269 South when the incident occured.

When officers arrived, they tried to question a black male, who fled the scene. A JPD officer, who was not identified, was hit by the vehicle the suspect was driving, and another police vehicle was also hit by the suspect’s car.

Rowe said shots were fired during the incident, however, she did not say who fired the shots.

No one was injured by gunfire, she said, and the suspect was taken into custody.

The suspect will not be identified until an investigation is complete, Rowe said.

No other details about the incident were released as of press time Wednesday.
