WARE, Mass. (WWLP) – It has been two days since a police officer fired his service weapon during a traffic stop in Ware, but few details about just what happened are being released.
The incident happened around 7:30 on Tuesday night, when the town police officer pulled over a car with New York plates on Route 32. State police spokesperson David Procopio says that at some point during the stop, the vehicle drove toward or struck the officer, who then fired.
One person was taken to Baystate Wing Memorial Hospital in Palmer following the incident, and later transferred to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, Procopio said. There had been two people inside the car at the time of the traffic stop, and it is not clear whether the officer was injured.
On Thursday afternoon, Mary Carey, spokesperson for the Northwestern District Attorney’s Office, said that no one died as a result of the incident. She added that everyone involved is currently being interviewed as part of the police investigation.
Carey said that they will release more information as it becomes available.
