A California sheriff’s deputy was flown to a local hospital shortly after he was shot after a driver was pursued who refused to give in.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s office said MPs in the Yucca Valley area – about a two-hour drive east of Los Angeles – attempted a traffic control near Paxton Road and Imperial Drive at around 12:33 p.m.
The sheriff’s office said the driver did not give in and a chase followed. At some point the driver “jumped” out of the vehicle and ran into the desert.
A deputy was shot a few moments later.
The sheriff’s office said the MP was in the hospital in an unknown condition.
