Barcelona cops shoot at man driving lorry

BARCELONA Police shot at a man who stole a lorry carrying butane gas and drove it at high speed against traffic, ramming several cars on a city highway.

The man has been arrested and is being questioned, a police spokeswoman said. The lorry was travelling on a highway near the northeastern Spanish city’s famed harbour around 11am Tuesday (10am GMT) after the man, identified in local media as Swedish citizen Joakim Robin Berggren, stole the lorry and tried to escape. Local media said the man could have been under the influence of drugs.

A regional police spokeswoman said no one was wounded from the police gunshots but injuries couldn’t be ruled out because the truck lost several butane gas tanks during the chase.

Several cars were hit during the attempted escape, she said, adding that the truck had been stolen earlier in the day in a nearby district.
