Manchester police arrested and charged a city man with three counts of attempted murder after an officer-involved shooting Thursday night.

Police said 29-year-old Justin McInnes, who was wanted on several warrants, began to flee and got into a car and accelerated toward officers outside an apartment building on the West Side. Officers fired at the vehicle and narrowly escaped getting hit, police said. Officers apprehended him nearby when the car failed or broke down.

 

McInnes was taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries related to broken glass or shrapnel from the car. Police said he was not shot.

A handgun was located inside the vehicle driven by McInnes, police said.

 

McInnes was previously wanted on a reckless conduct warrant from a July 27 road rage incident where he allegedly struck a vehicle, as well as a Sept. 5 incident that involved a brief police pursuit.
