    Six officers involved in the shooting escaped unscathed, Union City Police Department Lt. Travis Souza said. The injured suspect was taken to the hospital, but his gunshot injury was not considered to be life-threatening.

    Police said officers attempted to make a traffic stop in the area of E Street and Railroad Avenue around 11:35 p.m. Monday. As the officers attempted to make contact with the vehicle, shots were fired between the occupants in the vehicle and the officers, according to police.

    The vehicle fled from the scene, according to police, but stopped a short distance away at the intersection of Railroad Avenue and Whipple Road, where the three suspects inside the vehicle ran into the surrounding neighborhoods.
