Man wounded by Atmore police in chase

ATMORE, Ala. (AP) - A man shot by Atmore police remains in
critical condition at the University of South Alabama Medical
Center in Mobile.

Atmore public safety director Glenn Carlee says Danny Ray
Williams was shot early Sunday when police chased him in a Nissan
following a report of shots fired at an Atmore residence about 1
a.m.

Carlee says Williams was pursued into the Florida community of
Walnut Hill where he tried to ram a police car with his vehicle on
Fla. 97.

Carlee says Williams accelerated toward one officer who jumped
aside, then at the second officer who began firing.

The Nissan then ran off the road.

A passenger in Williams' vehicle escaped injury and was not
charged.

All officers involved were placed on paid leave pending an
investigation, with Florida authorities assisting.
