SHARE Harvey police searching for suspect who tried to run over officers

Police in south suburban Harvey are searching for a man who tried to run over officers with his car during an attempted stop Thursday morning.

Harvey spokesman Sean Howard said officers were waiting at the man’s home at 155th and Turlington when he returned home, saw them, and tried to run them over.

Howard said the man is suspected in a drive-by shooting that happened Thursday morning in Riverdale. He could not immediately provide details about that shooting, but said Harvey police had wanted to question the man for an unrelated incident.

The officers suffered non-life-threatening injuries while diving to avoid the car, Howard said.

The man took off in his powder blue Infiniti G35 and police are still searching for him, Howard said. Authorities believe he is in either in Harvey, Dolton, South Holland or Riverdale.

Anyone who sees the vehicle is asked to call 911. The driver is believed to be armed and dangerous, he said.
