Warrior Police Officer And Two Suspects Wounded

Three people wounded — a Warrior police officer, and two suspects — when they traded shots during a traffic stop yesterday. Happened near I-65 on an access road in Jefferson county. Not clear why the men were chased, though one had an outstanding warrant. When officers boxed in the car, a passenger started shooting. The officer was hit — but saved by his bullet-proof vest. The two suspects who were both shot — taken to the hospital– their conditions unknown. The officer’s name not given, he’s going to be on administrative duty while the shooting is investigated. It’s the third officer who’s shot someone in Warrior in recent months.
