A motorcyclist was shot by police on Monday morning after the motorcycle operator fled from an off duty police officer, who went after him for hitting his vehicle.
The incident happened at Paix Bouche, Babonneau around 11:45 a.m Monday (Nov.14).
The motorcyclist has been identified as a Babonneau resident by the name of Rick Sebastien.
Reports are that Sebastien refused to stop after hitting the officer’s vehicle. The officer pursued the motorcycle operator and reportedly gave him several warnings during the chase.
After several minutes had passed and the motorcycle was still proceeding, the officer pulled out his firearm and discharged one round, hitting Sebastien in the leg.
This caused him to stop immediately and hand over the motorcycle.
He was later transported to hospital for treatment.
