South Korea questioning U.S. soldiers over high-speed car chase
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - South Korean police say they are questioning U.S. soldiers over a high-speed car chase that resulted in a Seoul officer shooting a soldier after being hit by a car.
The soldiers reportedly fired a BB gun at pedestrians on a Seoul street Saturday night before fleeing in a car.
Police say an officer chased them in a taxi and fired at the car as it rushed by him. Police say the officer was injured and one U.S. soldier was shot in his shoulder but their injuries aren't life threatening.
Police say two U.S. soldiers and one family member were summoned for questioning Monday. The U.S. military says the injured soldier hasn't been cleared by medical professionals to be interviewed.
About 28,500 U.S. troops are stationed in South Korea.
