OPP officer injured in Malton takedown
At least two suspects are under arrest and an OPP officer has suffered what are being described as "very minor" injuries after an altercation in Malton Thursday afternoon.
What is being reported as a takedown of suspects in an alleged car theft ended in the area of Goreway and Etude Drives.
Peel Regional Police officers were also called in as backup. "Just before 5:00 (pm) we got a report from witnesses stating that they heard what they believed was shots being fired," says Peel Constable George Tudos.
It is unclear whose gun those shots came from. if the bullets hit anyone, or if police are looking for any suspects other than the two currently in custody.
The OPP is in charge of the investigation and has yet to comment on the story.
