A motorcyclist being chased by police through City Heights was injured by officer gunfire Tuesday after he ditched his bike and took off on foot.
SDPD officers were chasing the motorcyclist near Ogden and Wightman streets at around 5:45 p.m., according to SDPD Officer John Buttle.
The pursuit didn't last long before the driver got off his bike and tried to run away near Shiloh and Rex streets. At that point, he was shot at least once by officers, Buttle said.
