FLINT, Michigan — Authorities say Michigan State Police troopers shot and wounded two men in Flint following an early-morning chase.

State police spokesman Lt. David Kaiser says troopers tried to stop an SUV around 2:25 a.m. Thursday but the vehicle sped away. The Flint Journal reports another state police vehicle and a Flint police cruiser joined the chase, which lasted about 5 minutes.

After eventually being stopped, police say the SUV backed up and tried to hit troopers, who then opened fire. Police say a 36-year-old Flint man was shot in the wrist and had cuts to his face while an 18-year-old Flint man was shot in the thigh and abdomen.

Police say the wounds weren't considered life-threatening. WSGW-AM reports four troopers are on paid administrative leave while the shooting is investigated.
