DIXON, Calif. (AP) — The California Highway Patrol says a suspect is hospitalized after one of its officers shot him on a Northern California highway during a traffic stop.

CHP spokesman Officer Chris Parker says the incident occurred shortly before 8 p.m. Monday in Dixon. Officers had been told to be on the lookout for a stolen truck that was being driven by a man suspected of an assault in Sacramento.

Parker says when the officers saw the pickup on eastbound Interstate 80 and attempted a traffic stop, the driver came charging at one of them. The second officer then opened fire.

Parker says the unnamed suspect was shot once and remained combative as he was taken to a hospital. His condition was not known.

The highway was shut down for more than two hours after the shooting.
