OFFICER SHOT - An Oak Hill police officer shot during a traffic stop has been released from the hospital as authorities continue to search for the suspect.

Cpl. Chris Young of the Oak Hill Police Department was making a routine stop on W.Va. 61 in Oak Hill about 4 a.m. when the driver of the car shot him.

The driver stopped in the middle of the road, got out of his car and started firing at Young.

Cpl. Young took cover and returned fire, but was struck in the chest by a bullet. At least one round struck his police cruiser.

The driver then got back in his car and sped away.

Young was wearing a ballistic vest, which likely saved his life.

Area police have been notified to look for a black man driving a dark-colored Cadillac or other large car with Ohio plates.
