An 18-year-old is recovering in the hospital after being shot Monday night when Jefferson Parish deputies were investigating a stolen vehicle in Westwego.

Sheriff Joe Lopinto says one suspect surrendered but the driver got back in the vehicle and backed into a deputy who then opened fire.

The driver, 18-year-old Samuel Taylor, drove off but was wounded and went to New Orleans East Medical Center for treatment. Plans are to charge him with aggravated assault with a vehicle.
