A trooper was injured and taken to Tacoma General Hospital after a pursuit Thursday morning in Roy, according to the State Patrol.
The trooper, a 48-year-old man, had soreness in one knee but would otherwise be OK, agency spokesman Guy Gill said.
The man had the lights and sirens going on his State Patrol car as he was pursuing a fleeing vehicle about 7 a.m. heading west on 288th Street South in Roy, the agency said.
The trooper's vehicle didn't make a curve, and left the road into a pasture near Lyons Drive South, the State Patrol said.
Gill said the fleeing subject was possibly wanted in connection to a shooting.
Further details about the shooting and the suspect, including whether he or she was in custody, were not immediately available. Gill referred questions to the Pierce County Sheriff's Department. Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer did not have information to provide Thursday night.
