      Authorities say a state trooper is recovering after being shot in Saginaw in an exchange of gunfire that also left a suspect wounded.

      Police say the trooper, who was wearing a bullet-resistant vest, was briefly hospitalized before being released later Thursday night. Police say Friday the suspect was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

      When officers approached, police say a shooting ensued.

      An area roadway was shut down as police investigated.
