SWAMPSCOTT, MASS. (WHDH) - A Lynn police officer was taken to the hospital Friday after a pursuit ended in Swampscott.

SKY7 HD flew over the scene on Essex Street where the suspect was taken into custody around 4 p.m.

Sources say local and state police were working together to try and stop the suspect after they allegedly flashed a gun. They said the car eventually crashed into two cruisers in Swampscott.

The officer suffered a minor leg injury and the suspect too suffered minor injuries.

“It’s upsetting, I never like to see officers hurt in the line of duty,” said Jesse McCall who lives nearby. “This is a busy intersection but a quiet neighborhood so I’m surprised something like this happened here.”

No further details were released.
