According to a department statement on Facebook, "These officers had just completed a call for service and were standing in the parking lot in front of the store debriefing the incident when the suspect drove his vehicle directly at them attempting to run them over. The suspect vehicle struck two of the officers, collided into a police vehicle and crashed into the QT causing extensive damage."
