A Philadelphia police officer suffered leg and arm injuries earlier tonight when he was struck and dragged by a red Chevrolet in Brewerytown.

Police spokesman Lt. Frank Vanore said the cop, whose name was not released, was on-duty and riding a bicycle on Girard Avenue near 30th Street when he was hit by the Chevy, which was driven by a 27-year-old man.

Another police officer who was at the scene opened fire, hitting the Chevy once, Vanore said. Police captured the motorist, whose name was not released, about a block from where the accident occurred. The injured cop was listed in stable condition at Temple University Hospital, Vanore said. The driver, who complained of pain, was taken to Hahnemann University Hospital to be examined.
