A police officer was involved in a shooting that happened Sunday morning in Bibb County.

Cousins Risky and Samantha Duncan were pulled over by a Centreville Police Officer around 9 a.m. yesterday morning.

The officer discovered that the driver, Ricky Duncan, had warrants for his arrest. When the officer attempted to take him into custody, Ricky Duncan sped off, nearly striking the officer.

A high speed chase ensued and several other law enforcement agencies became involved. The chase ended when the car stopped and Ricky Duncan exited the vehicle with a hand gun.

Officers fired their weapons at Duncan, striking him multiple times. He was taken to the hospital where he is still being treated, and he will be charged after he is released from DCH Regional Medical Center.
