A Pennsylvania state trooper was shot in the shoulder Tuesday and the suspects’ vehicle and school bus were involved in a fiery crash along a Philadelphia highway, officials said.

Three suspects were taken into custody and the trooper has been hospitalized in stable condition, Philadelphia Police Department spokeswoman Leeloni Palmiero said.

District Attorney Seth Williams said the confrontation apparently started with a vehicle stop, and that the trooper appeared to have been hit while still in his cruiser. He said the trooper apparently returned fire after being shot. He also said some good Samaritans were involved in the capture of the suspects.
