A suspect is in custody after allegedly shooting at police in City Heights early Thursday morning.

At about 1 a.m. in the area of Euclid and Wightman, police began chasing the suspect, according to the San Diego Police Department.

Police said the suspect was driving a car that had been reported stolen earlier. When officers attempted to pull him over, he stopped, but then put the car in gear and drove into one of the officers. 

The two officers fired into the vehicle, grazing the suspect's shoulder, but then the suspect took off at a high rate of speed, according to a statement from the department. 

After driving westbound on Wightman Street, he turned left onto Euclid Avenue but lost control and crashed into a street sign. 

He then took off on foot, but was arrested in the west alley of Euclid Avenue by other officers. He was booked into jail and faces several felony charges. 

The suspect did not require medical treatment.
