Evansville Police say a suspect was taken into custody with non-life-threatening injuries Thursday after an officer-involved shooting in the city.
Just before 10:00 a.m. Thursday morning, the Evansville Police Department says two detectives were in the area of Morgan Avenue and Ruston Avenue investigating a possibly-stolen vehicle.
The detectives, who were waiting on additional units to arrive at the scene, attempted to confront the suspect after the stolen vehicle became stuck in the snow.
The suspect in the stolen vehicle, who was later identified as 38-year-old Anthony Scott Sapp of Evansville, then attempted to run over a detective, forcing the detective to fire one round at the suspect, according to police.
Police say the round fired by the detective hit Sapp in his upper right shoulder.

According to EPD, more officers then arrived at the scene and attempted to remove Sapp from the vehicle. During a brief struggle, a taser was deployed and Sapp was taken into custody.
Sapp was taken to an area hospital, where EPD says it was discovered that Sapp's shoulder injury was very minor. He was released a short time later and booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail.
