A 17-year-old burglary suspect was shot in Rockledge overnight by an officer after a car chase that resulted in a police cruiser being hit and the suspected getaway vehicle wrecked in a ditch, investigators said. Police first responded to the area of Hawk and Cogswell streets just before midnight Thursday after receiving several calls from residents about two individuals breaking into cars, . The two fled from officers in a white Toyota Corolla and at some point in the chase one of the police cruisers was hit by the suspects’ car, Rockledge Police Department spokeswoman Donna Seyferth said
“Officers tried to stop that vehicle, that vehicle fled, actually striking one of their vehicles, one of our patrol cars, as it fled,” she said. The Corolla ended up crashing into a ditch at the intersection of Hawk and Cogswell streets and when the two suspects got out of the car, one was shot by Cpl. Nick Galluzzi, a 17-year-veteran of the department. The other individual, Anthony Pierre, 15, ran away, but was caught by officers a short time later.
