BATON ROUGE - Law enforcement officials are searching for the suspect who allegedly attempted to run over a Louisiana State Trooper early Friday morning.

State Police say a trooper was on duty around 2 a.m. this morning when he witnessed a vehicle leaving a gas station on College Drive driving suspiciously.

The driver led the trooper on a chase through the area. They ended up in a field, where officials say the driver's vehicle spun around.

The trooper then exited his vehicle to approach the driver, when the vehicle started driving toward him.

That's when the trooper fired at the suspect, who fled the scene.

Investigators located the abandoned vehicle two blocks away.
