Officer injured during foot chase



A police chase on foot involving a 16-year-old boy on the west side of Seymour on Monday morning left a city officer injured.

Officer Chris McCoy was taken to the emergency room at Schneck Medical Center in Seymour for a fracture, after he tripped and fell while running in the area of the Jay C Food Store parking lot in the 1500 block of West Tipton Street, Police Chief Bill Abbott said.

Abbott declined to give further details on McCoy’s injury, but the veteran officer of 15 years was expected to be released from the hospital Monday.
