A police officer remains in the hospital following an accidental shooting early Monday night.
It started after Sistersville Police were notified of a stolen vehicle.
While on patrol, officers noticed a vehicle matching its description.
When officers turned on their lights to execute a stop, the driver reportedly decided to speed away.
An off duty officer met the chase on Route 2 in Paden City.
After a minor collision, arresting officers were able to stop the chase.
While attempting to re-holster his weapon, one of the officers accidentally shot himself in the thigh area.
He was immediately taken to a nearby hospital, but according to Chief Rob Haught he sustained a “non life-threatening” injury.
The name of the suspect is not being released at this time, but Chief Haught says more arrests are expected.
