(Beaver Falls, Pa) A police pursuit of a black truck that started in Ohio led to the Beaver Valley Rifle & Pistol Club shooting range next to the Brady’s Run Walking Trail along Constitution Boulevard Thursday afternoon. Dispatch calls stated that the incident started with a prostitution sting in which the suspect fled nearly running over an officer.

Witnesses allegedly informed police that the suspect was on the shooting range property after he allegedly ran over their dog. The dog did not survive.

Over a dozen Police and law enforcement officials were on scene. The suspect was reportedly driving around at the shooting range frantically. Reports indicate that the suspect was held at gunpoint and taken into custody from his vehicle around 2:40pm.

EMS were called in and reports indicate that the suspect suffered a K9 bite. White powder was also allegedly found near the suspect in his vehicle, and Narcan was administered.

A witness traveling on Route 51 during the chase says that police were traveling so fast that one cruiser almost rear ended her and slid into dirt on the side of the road. Dispatch calls stated the suspect was traveling at 120 mph.

An ambulance left the scene followed by Police around 3:30pm.
