CLEVELAND — Authorities say a police officer working with a U.S. Marshals fugitive task force has shot and wounded a murder suspect in Cleveland.
A Cleveland police spokesman says a task force member from Euclid shot 22-year-old Mckale Hill around 9:30 a.m. Friday. Hill was shot in the head and is hospitalized in serious condition.
Pete Elliott, U.S. Marshal for northern Ohio, says task force members were conducting surveillance on a home before serving an arrest warrant when Hill got into a car and drove toward the Euclid officer, prompting him to fire four shots.
The officer hasn’t been identified. He wasn’t injured.
Hill was charged in November with aggravated murder for a slaying in Cleveland.
The Cleveland police use of deadly force team is investigating Friday’s shooting.
