A late night car chase in South Korea ended with a U.S soldier being shot and injured. Local media is reporting that the local police got a call around midnight on Saturday that two American soldiers were threatening civilians in Seoul. The two Americans refused to identify themselves to the police and fled in a vehicle, which resulted in a car chase. Police then reportedly shot a warning bullet, then three rounds of bullets at the car. The U.S soldier was shot in the shoulder and is reportedly 23 years young and is being treated in hospital, but is in a stable condition. There are about 30,000 US troops stationed in South Korea. The latest incident could raise tensions between the troops and the residents of South Korea. Video Courtesy OF Reuters
