Hackney said police have not yet found a gun at the scene, only a folding knife that looks like a pistol that was still in the car.
Police say Sgt. Mike Moon shot Hastings after the suspect crashed a stolen car.
Moon told investigators that he struck a fleeing Hastings with his car, and saw a gun in the suspect's hand when he rolled over the police car's hood.
Hastings, who is black, was struck twice, treated and arrested. The officer's race was not immediately known.
