A chase suspect has been shot by a Georgia State trooper in Trenton Thursday evening.

It happened on Highway 136 near Bethune's Garden Center.

Sheriff Ray Cross confirms a GSP trooper shot a suspect.

The GBI says Trooper Joe Geddie tried to pull over the suspect, 31-year-old Brandon Anthony Vitier, but he would not stop.

The GBI says Vitier led Trooper Geddie on a short chase. The GBI says Vitier eventually pointed a gun at the trooper through his car window, causing the trooper to shoot the suspect several times.

Vitier has been taken to a local hospital for treatment. He is stable but in critical condition.

The GBI is investigating the incident.

Channel 3's records show a lawsuit claiming excessive force was filed against Trooper Joseph Geddie in August of 2017.
