GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police say a trooper shot a Georgetown man when questioning about a hit-and-run crash turned into a violent struggle.
The trooper was questioning 53-year-old Michael Rogers at his home on Thursday night about his involvement in the crash, when police say an intoxicated Rogers became uncooperative and struggled violently with the trooper. Police say a stun gun was not effective and the trooper fired his gun several times, striking Rogers in his upper body and lower extremities.
PRINCESS ANNE, Md. (AP) - State police have identified a man shot and killed by troopers after a chase on the lower Eastern Shore.
Police say 49-year-old Terry Diaz of Princess Anne was shot in the head after the chase in Somerset County Wednesday night. He died at the scene.
Police haven't said why the troopers shot Diaz. Diaz's sport-utility vehicle was stuck in the mud in a grass median at the time, and he was inside the car. Police say the troopers gave Diaz verbal commands before they opened fire.
