NORTH HUNTINGDON TWP. (KDKA)- A police officer noticed two men hanging out in a park after dark. And when the men noticed the officer, they tried to run him over.

It happened after dark Monday night, at a park off Hilltop Park Drive in North Huntingdon Township.

Police say the officer tried to confront the two white men, that’s when the driver put the vehicle in drive and took off.

The officer was nearly hit and fired several shots as the vehicle drove away.
