A Colorado Springs police officer who fired a shot at a suspect last week has been identified.
On November 15, Officer John Clay fired at least one shot at the suspect, who was armed and had hijacked a vehicle, according to a press release from police.
The suspect, who was not hit by the shot, was arrested, police said. Clay has been with the CSPD since January 2016 and is affiliated with the Stetson Hills Patrol.
Officers were initially dispatched to the area at North Academy Boulevard and Half Turn Road and contacted the suspect in the area at Greentree Village Apartments. The suspect, who has been charged with several crimes, including possession of a weapon by a former perpetrator, allegedly pointed a firearm at the officer during the meeting, a press release said.
The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office is the leading investigative body for the police shooting, and the investigation is ongoing.
