Yukon Police is investigating after an officer fired shots at a slow speed chase suspect this morning.

According to City of Yukon representatives, officers attempted to stop a male driver in a parking lot around 1:47 a.m. Officers said the suspect refused to stop, and reversed into a squad car twice. An officer used a patrol rifle and shot at the suspect's car. The suspect was taken into police custody.

"Officer-involved shootings are rare," said Jenna Robertson of Yukon Police. "In fact, since the time I've been here, this is the first one I've seen. So definitely a rare occurrence in Yukon."

No injuries were reported. 

OSBI will conduct an investigation.
