Dragged by Car, Officer Fires Weapon at Fleeing Suspect

A Germantown, Tennessee, Police Officer is recovering after he was dragged by a car following a shoplifting incident.

According to Germantown Police, at approximately 3:56 p.m., officers responded to the Poplar Old Navy store regarding a shoplifting in progress. Responding officers encountered the suspects as they entered a silver four door sedan.
