(York) -- Police are seeking a 24-year-old York man wanted for attempted homicide of a police officer after an incident Sunday in Manchester Township, according to a Northern York County Regional Police Department news release.

At 10 p.m., a Northern Regional police officer stopped a green 1994 Buick sedan in the parking lot of the Crossroads Shopping Center in Manchester for suspected DUI.

After detecting the smell of marijuana in the car, the officer asked the driver, Trev Bowies Jackson, to step from the vehicle. As the officer attempted to arrest him, Jackson, of the 100 block of East College Avenue, pulled a handgun from his waist and fired three rounds at the officer, according to the release.

The officer returned fire as Jackson jumped into his car and fled the scene. The vehicle was last seen on Heidelberg Avenue heading toward the Susquehanna Trail.

Though the officer, whose name was not provided, was not wounded by the rounds shot by Jackson, he sustained facial injuries. The officer did not require medical attention.

Jackson has been charged with criminal attempt of homicide, aggravated assault and reckless endangerment of another person.

Police are searching for information on Jackson and the Buick car he was driving when he fled the scene. Jackson is considered armed and dangerous. He is 5-foot-7, weighs 170 pounds and was last seen wearing a tan hooded jacket and blue jeans, according to the release.

The Buick car Jackson was driving is dark blue or green with the license plate JVZ-6735.
