Police confirm the officer has been hospitalized, but no information on his condition was immediately available.
Around 10:30 a.m., Millis Middle School received a call from someone who "indicated a crime may occur" in the town on Wednesday, according to police. About an hour later, the school received a bomb threat by telephone.
"It is bizarre to have the bomb scare and then that, as well," said Heidi Perkins, who lives near the spot where the cruiser crashed.
While police are not sure whether these events are connected, the town's schools will not be open Thursday.
"Basically, we had an officer who was driving down Forest Road here. He was shot at. We believe two to three shots were fired at his vehicle," said Millis Police Sgt. William Dwyer. "He returned fire, we believe three shots."

Wow, the officer fabricated the whole thing.
Just saw a press conference, no link to offer.
He used his own gun to shoot the cruiser, even.
ergeant William Dwyer, a police spokesman, said the only ballistic evidence found at the site came from the officer himself, who was a part-time officer, a police spokesman said.
Shots fired at officer spur manhunt
A gunman shot at a police vehicle, causing it to crash and catch fire, and leading officials to shut down schools on today.
He said police were making the statement to “make sure the public knows that they are now safe.”
Officials said the officer was a part-time officer and a full-time dispatcher who had been on the job about a year and a half.
