N.Y. dump truck chase ends in shooting

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Police say a 37-year-old man driving a dump truck led them on an hour-long chase over roads, rails and yards in the Syracuse area that ended with the suspect being shot.

The Onondaga County Sheriff says Stanley Lostumbo jumped into a dump truck Tuesday night after being accused of stealing from vending machines at a mall. Police pursued the truck on a highway, through backyards and school grounds and down railroad tracks at speeds up to 65 mph before stopping it at a barricade in East Syracuse.

Police say Lostumbo reversed the truck and hit a sheriff's vehicle and officers fired, apparently striking Lostumbo in the shoulder. He was briefly hospitalized for minor injuries.

Deputies are questioning Lostumbo this morning. It was not clear if he had a lawyer
