Watch: Deputy Shoots at 12-Year-Old Driver who Struck Officer during Car Chase
Deputies in Meridian, Mississippi fired several shots at a 12-year-old girl who they say stole her mother's car and then led them on a chase at around 8 p.m. on August 15.
The incident was captured on video.
Footage shows one of the deputies laying out spikes during the chase, but the girl kept driving and eventually struck a deputy with the car, according to Sheriff Billy Sollie.
"She cut us off. Wide open," witness Charles Brown told WTOK.
"The officer threw the spikes out and blew the tires out, and she still kept going and tried to come back around again. The officer, I guess he was trying to get the spikes out the road or something, and she ran him over."
Several gun shots can be heard just seconds after the deputy is struck by the vehicle and footage of the incident, which was posted to Facebook by Shamarcus Dickinson, ends.
The deputy suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
The child, who is now in custody, was not injured.
Mississppi Bureau of investigation will be handling the case since a deputy was injured and shots were fired, Sheriff Sollie said.
