(Lancaster) -- State police shot and wounded a man in Lancaster County after he allegedly drove into a trooper's vehicle as they tried to arrest him.

The shooting occurred shortly after two this morning at a home in Paradise Township.

Authorities say the man was being sought by law enforcement -- but haven't provided additional details.

When troopers arrived at the home, they found him in a van.  The man allegedly drove off as they approached and struck a state police cruiser.

Troopers then fired at the van, which soon crashed into a field. 

The man was hit by one bullet. He was being treated at a hospital for wounds that were not considered life-threatening.

His name hasn't been released.

No troopers were injured.
