 HANNIBAL, Mo. (AP) -- The Missouri State Highway Patrol is investigating after a police officer shot and wounded a suspect in the northeast Missouri town of Hannibal.

Hannibal Police Chief Lyndell Davis says an officer spotted 24-year-old DaMark Rudd Saturday night in the downtown area. Rudd was wanted for parole violation and drug charges.
Rudd jumped in a car and sped away, nearly hitting the officer and striking the police car and another car. Another officer fired a shot at the car, which crashed a short time later.
Rudd was treated for minor injuries and taken into custody, but a passenger in his car, a 23-year-old Hannibal man, was shot. Davis says his injuries are not life-threatening.
The officer's name has not been released. He is on paid administrative leave pending an investigation.
