Two Titusville police officers are on administrative leave after one of them fired a weapon at a vehicle
The incident, which occurred at about 12:40 a.m. Monday, is being investigated by Corry state police.
State police said the Titusville officers tried to stop a maroon Ford Escape for traffic violations, and the vehicle fled through Titusville and into Oil Creek Township.
One of the Titusville officers left the cruiser and fired his weapon in the direction of the vehicle, state police said.
The vehicle then went south toward Titusville and wasn’t located, according to state police.
“When the registration was ran, it did not match the vehicle it was on,” Titusville police Chief Dustin LeGoullon said.
Corry state police are investigating the interaction between the suspect and the Titusville officers.
The investigation, LeGoullon said, is two-fold, involving the state police and the Crawford County district attorney’s office.
“The state police gathers all the evidence and conducts interviews,” he said. “Once that’s all obtained, that all will go to the district attorney’s office.”
