Multiple law enforcement agencies are investigating an officer involved shooting that happened near the intersection of Northeast 10th Avenue and Northeast 219th Street in Battle Ground Monday.

Officers were responding to an alarm call from a US Bank branch in Vancouver about a robbery.

Investigators were following a GPS tracker placed in the bag of stolen money and located the suspect.

After a pursuit, officers used a PIT maneuver to stop the suspect’s vehicle.

Gunfire was exchanged between the suspect and law enforcement and the suspect was shot.

The condition of the suspect is unknown at this time, and there were no reports of injuries to any law enforcement officers.

Officers did note that the investigation will likely keep the intersection closed through the evening commute.
