OMAHA, Neb. (AP) Two Omaha police officers' decision to shoot at a fleeing suspect's truck will be investigated, but no one was seriously injured in the shooting.

Police Officer Michael Pecha says the two officers were working security at the Tquila Bar when the incident happened early Sunday.

The officers and the bar's security staff noticed someone prowling the parking lot checking car doors while another man followed in a white truck.

The man roaming the lot was apprehended without incident, but the man in the truck drove at the officers as he fled. The officers fired at the truck.

The man in the truck turned himself into police later and was arrested. One of the officers sustained minor injuries. Both officers will be on leave while the shooting is investigated.
