A suspect is in hospital following an RCMP shooting during a traffic stop on Highway 16 southeast of Saskatoon Friday afternoon, according to the Mounties.

Police said officers were investigating a series of break and enters in Watrous, Sask., from earlier in the day.

Around 2:50 p.m. CST, members of the Saskatoon RCMP detachment found a vehicle matching the description of a suspected vehicle in the case on Highway 16 and did a traffic stop near Clavet, west of the Bradwell turnoff and Clark Road.

"During the traffic stop, RCMP members on the scene discharged their firearms and one adult male was injured and taken to hospital," the Mounties said in a release.

Three other passengers in the suspect vehicle were arrested. They were not injured. RCMP also said none of their members were hurt.

The shooting element of the case will be looked at by an outside force, in this case the Regina police.

The investigation into the break and enter is continuing.

RCMP said motorists can expect delays in the area over the next several hours.
