SAN DIEGO – Dozens of officers pursed a woman in a stolen California Highway Patrol vehicle near Mission Bay Thursday afternoon.
A CHP officer came under gunfire Thursday at 2:45 p.m. during a hit-and-run accident in the area of Clairemont Drive and De Anza Cove near Interstate 5. A woman stole the officer’s cruiser, sped off and led a pursuit through Mission Bay and Mission Valley.
Dozens of officers, including San Diego police, pursued the vehicle until coming to a stop at Friars Road and Qualcomm Way.
A short time time later, at least one officer opened fire, CHP spokeswoman Mary Bailey said. The suspect was then taken into custody.
It’s unclear if she was wounded. No other injuries have been reported.
Authorities closed traffic lanes in the area into the evening hours to allow for investigation.
