MANASSAS, Va. (AP) -- A man was shot and wounded by officers in northern Virginia after police say he called 911 to report a shooting that didn't happen, described the SUV he was driving, then struck pursuing cruisers.

Prince William County police said in a statement that after Manassas City Police officers tried to stop the SUV the caller described Friday, the SUV hit two cruisers before stopping in a parking lot.

Spokesman Sgt. Jonathan Perok says there was a confrontation and the 18-year-old driver was shot. He has serious injuries, but is expected to survive. A BB gun was recovered at the scene. Perok says officers and a 15-year-old girl inside the SUV weren't injured.

Manassas Police Chief Doug Keen says six officers are on administrative leave, including two involved in the shooting.
