A state trooper is thankful to be alive today after a traffic stop turns into a shootout where he gets shot.
A piece of standard equipment very likely saved a state trooper's life.
After 6:00 last night, a Marshall D.P.S. Trooper stopped a car on a county road and asked for identification from 3 occupants.
That's when one man began firing shots. Trooper Alan Clark was shot, but the bullet shattered a radio microphone on his shoulder and deflected away.
The suspect was also hit, but that didn't stop him from leading authorities on a four hour manhunt in the Woodlawn area north of Marshall.
20 year old Thomas Wynne of Diana was arrested. He had actually been shot twice. Neither time was serious.
