Local

TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The New York State Police say two officers were injured and another narrowly avoided getting hurt while troopers were serving a warrant in the area of Third Street in Troy. Officers say they were trying to serve Joseph Evans Jr., 20, of Cohoes, who is wanted in connection with a sealed indictment from Albany County Court.

Troopers say Evans jumped in a vehicle and tried to flee when he saw law enforcement officers. While fleeing, police say he almost hit a Trooper, who discharged their weapon but did not hit Evans.

Evans then allegedly crashed into an unmarked Trooper vehicle, causing non-life-threatening injuries to the two State Police members inside.

Evans was taken into custody without any further issues.
