The GBI's Perry office says a Houston County deputy shot a man who drove away from a traffic stop and then rammed two patrol cars with a vehicle.

The unidentified suspect is in critical condition at the the Medical Center of Central Georgia, according to Rodney Wall, GBI special agent in charge of the Perry office.

He says it happened around 3 p.m. on Moody Road.

Wall said the deputy tried to pull the car over in "a routine traffic stop."

The driver would not stop.

Three other Houston County deputies joined the pursuit before the driver finally stopped just south of Lake Placid Road.

When officers got out, Wall says the driver rammed the vehicle into two patrol cars.

According to the GBI, a deputy then fired multiple gunshots at the man, who was still inside the car.  Wall says, there is no indication the man was armed at this time.

The wounded person was taken to the Medical Center of Central Georgia and was listed in critical condition as of 7 p.m. Friday.

Wall did not identify the man shot or release any further details on the shooting.
