Shots were fired in a neighborhood in Imperial Beach after a truck tried to run over an officer Saturday night, San Diego Police said.
SDPD responded at around 10:30 p.m. to an area near 12th St. and Holly Avenue.
Gunfire was reported after an officer tried to pull over a gold Ford F-150 that was reported stolen from a home invasion robbery in San Ysidro on Nov. 6., investigators said.
The suspect refused to pull over and ended up in a cul-de-sac, that was when he tried to ram the officer twice. The officer was outside his car and managed to move out the way when another officer who responded to the scene shot at the suspect, confirmed SDPD Lt. Martha Sainz.
The suspect continued to flee when he stopped near 1200 Holly Ave. He and his passenger took off running, confirmed police.
Police set up a perimeter of the area and the passenger was found Sunday morning. She was questioned then released, Sainz said.
The suspect, described to be a man in his 30s, around 5-foot-8, 180 pounds, and wearing a ball cap, still remains outstanding. Officers think he may be in a nearby apartment building.
He is wanted in connection to the robbery on Nov. 6.
Sometime during the pursuit, the suspect threw a handgun out the window which has been recovered by SDPD.
No injuries were reported.
Part of 13th Street and Holly Ave. were closed during the investigation.
