US soldier shot by S Korean police during car chase

An American soldier was in stable condition Sunday after being shot by South Korean authorities during a late-night car chase, police said Sunday.

According to Seoul’s Yongsan Police Station, police received calls shortly before midnight Saturday that two American soldiers, including the injured, were threatening civilians with an air gun in the multicultural district of Itaewon.

The two U.S. soldiers were approached by Seoul police near Itaewon Station, but they refused to identify themselves and fled in a vehicle, leading to the car chase through the capital city.

When they came to a dead end in southeastern Seoul, police fired off a warning shot and three rounds of bullets as the vehicle tried to rush through police officers despite warnings.

The car’s driver was hit by one of the bullets and another officer was slightly injured in the process, according to police.

The soldier, only identified by his rank of private first class, is currently receiving treatment on his upper body at a U.S. military hospital in Seoul and is in stable condition, according to officers.

In the process of fleeing, the servicemen damaged other cars, prompting officers from other stations to rush to the scene.

Police said they identified the soldiers with their vehicle license plate number and called them to appear before officers for questioning by Monday. Yonhap

HIGHLIGHTS

One of the Yongsan police officials said police believe the two servicemembers were drunk. However, initial tests for intoxicating substances did not indicate the presence of alcohol, according to an Eighth Army statement. Stars and Stripes

Guns are banned in South Korea, where only police and the military are allowed to carry them. U.S. troops conducting off-base patrols no longer carry guns following a July 2012 incident outside Osan Air Base in which town patrol members handcuffed South Korean civilians during a dispute over an illegally parked car.

The U.S. 8th Army in the area reportedly offered an apology and vowed to cooperate in the investigation. AFP

About 28,500 U.S. troops are stationed in South Korea. Crimes or disputes involving the U.S. troops are a sensitive subject in South Korea. AFP
