This followed a car chase.

Officers tried to pull over a car with paper plates, believing the vehicle may have been stolen, around 1 p.m., authorities said.

When the driver refused to stop, police began a pursuit, Sgt. Barry Montgomery said.

He said the passenger got out of the car at some point and ran into the back of a house, where he was shot. The driver fled the scene and remained on the loose.


Montgomery said a weapon was recovered at the scene, but he would not say what it was or what led to the shooting.

The shooting drew several dozen people to the scene, angered that police had shot a black man. A small group of protesters blocked an intersection near the shooting scene Saturday night, with some waving signs that read “Black Lives Matter” and others shouting at officers in riot helmets.
