San Diego Photojournalist Catches A Shoot Out On Camera


By Paul Johnson

San Diego, California (CNN) - A motorist who refused to yield for a traffic stop Thursday led officers on an hour-long pursuit that ended with the suspect wounded.
San Diego police say the driver, who had a female passenger with him, sped off Thursday morning when a police sergeant tried to pull him over for using a cell phone behind the wheel.
While chasing the 2002 Saturn sedan, police determined that it matched the description of a man wanted for shooting two men on Monday night.
At one point during the pursuit....the suspect pulled over long enough to let his companion out, and then sped off again.
The suspect ran over several tire-flattening spike strips laid out in his path before finally slowing to a halt.
San Diego 6 captured these video images of the car stopping in the roadway with squad cars directly behind it, their sirens screaming.
A moment later, you can see and hear about two dozen rounds going off towards the car.
The suspect was taken to a hospital, his condition is unknown.
