Police detained one person and were seeking two others early this morning after a suspect shot at a plainclothes San Francisco police officer on U.S. Highway 101, a police spokesman said. The officer was driving south on the highway in an unmarked car at about 1:30 a.m. when someone in 1990 Buick fired at him, police said. The officer was not injured, and police pursued the suspect vehicle, which contained three people, Officer Albie Esparza said.
The car exited the highway at Cesar Chavez Street and headed north on Potrero Avenue, then made a left onto 25th Street, police said. All three exited the car in the 2500 block of Bryant Street, where one suspect was taken into custody, police said. Police set up a perimeter and searched for the two other suspects, but did not immediately find them. The search was called off shortly before 4 a.m.
