Officers said they stopped a car with a flat tire shortly before 11 p.m. Saturday but smelled marijuana and spotted a gun. Police say the officers struggled with the driver, who put the car into gear and accelerated, and one officer fell. Police say the other held on but fired after the gun was pointed at him, and the vehicle hit a transit police vehicle carrying two officers.
Twenty-six-year-old Maurice Smith was treated for a gunshot wound to the forearm. A gun was recovered in an alley nearby Sunday morning. Calls to Smith and his attorney weren't immediately returned Wednesday.
