    suspect in chase

    BARTON ó Police say a man was shot by two state troopers in Vermont after he allegedly stole a vehicle and led officers on a chase before reportedly ramming two police cruisers.

    The suspect, Eric Jackson, 27, of Lyndonville, was listed in stable condition Wednesday morning at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

    Police said he was wanted on escape status from the Department of Corrections; further information was not immediately available.

    Police said the vehicle was taken shortly after 2 a.m. from a home on Route 5 in Sutton. After a lengthy pursuit, the vehicle stopped in Barton, changed directions by accelerating in reverse and repeatedly rammed two police cruisers.

    Two troopers fired, police said. They were placed on administrative leave.
