Northern Wyoming Officer Shoots, Critically Wounds Suspect
BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A county attorney in rural northern Wyoming says an officer shot and critically injured a man during a disturbance.
Washakie County Attorney John Worrall says officers with the sheriff's office and the Worland Police Department entered a home late Sunday night and encountered a man with a baseball bat. One of the officers was knocked unconscious, and the other shot the man in the abdomen as he approached.
Both officers were treated at a local medical center, and the suspect was flown to Billings in critical condition. His name has not been released.
