BELLINGHAM (AP) — Law enforcement officers reportedly have shot and wounded two men believed to have robbed a Bellingham gas station. The two led police on a chase up the Mount Baker Highway and exchanged gunfire with pursuing officers.
The Bellingham Herald reports (http://is.gd/2yWmGM ) that no officers were hit Thursday evening.
The newspaper says the robbers were armed with a sawed-off shotgun and the driver of the fleeing car fired at police.
The speeding car eventually crashed near a roundabout. One man reportedly continued firing at arriving officers, who returned fire.
One man was reported in critical condition with multiple gunshot wounds while the other was hit in an arm.
