Officer on bike hit, dragged in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A gunshot was fired after a Milwaukee police officer on bike patrol was hit by a fleeing car and dragged.

Police say two officers on bikes approached the car about 10:30 p.m. Thursday and the driver suddenly accelerated, striking one officer. The second officer fired a shot at the fleeing vehicle, which was believed to be stolen. It was found about six blocks away, but no driver was in sight.

The officer sustained non-life threatening injuries.
