Bucks County police asked all area police departments to help look for a dark, late-model Oldsmobile Cutlass on Monday morning after a passenger in the car took a shot at a Chalfont police officer.

Officer Jon Cousin, who was wearing a bullet-proof vest, was shot once in the chest in the parking lot of Lenape Valley Swim Club at 3:16 a.m., and then the car left, police said. Cousin was taken to Abington Hospital, where he was treated and released.

Cousin was shot as he checked into what the car and the three people inside it were doing at the swim club on Westview Avenue, police said. The driver and one passenger got out of the car as Cousin approached, and the passenger fired a gun, police said. The car might be maroon, police said. Chalfont is about 2 miles southwest of Doylestown.
