KOCHVILLE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say a police officer has been shot and wounded during a traffic stop in mid-Michigan.

Saginaw Township police Chief Don Pussehl says the Saginaw Township officer stopped a motorist about 2 a.m. Tuesday in Saginaw County's Kochville Township and the driver shot him as he approached the vehicle. Pussehl says the officer radioed for help after the shooting and was described as being in "somewhat stable condition."

Pussehl says police are searching for the motorist, who fled. The officer's name has not been released.

Police say the suspect may be Joshua Rosebush. The suspect is believed to be driving a stolen white 2013 Ford F350 Super Duty Truck, which has black and yellow pinstripes on the side, with an AIS Construction sticker in the rear window. The license plate is MI DB60703.
