Four Philadelphia police officers were injured Tuesday afternoon after a man turned his car on them, officials said.

Police told WTXF-TV that a man hit them with his car just before 2:30 p.m. Other officers pursued the suspect, who hit several other cars as he fled.

Several shots were fired by police.

WTXF reported the officers first approached the suspect's car after he crashed it into a wall. The suspect allegedly battled the officers as they tried to get him out but the suspect climbed back in and struck the officers.

The car eventually came to a stop and the suspect was taken into custody. The suspect was reported to have been shot in the chest. His condition is not yet known.

Three of the officers were being treated at a nearby hospital but none of the officers' injuries were life-threatening, according to WTXF.
