An hour-long police pursuit ended in Mount Hope Thursday with police shooting the driver — and it was all caught on camera. San Diego police say the pursuit began at about 8:30 a.m. in the 5400 block of Grape Street when a sergeant tried to stop a 40-year-old man in a 2002 two-door Saturn for talking on his cellphone while driving.
As the sergeant started to get out of the police cruiser, the driver of the Saturn took off. Police say the suspect raced down residential streets at speeds of up to 60 mph. The sergeant called in the pursuit and learned a matching car was linked to a shooting several days earlier.
Police later allegedly found a firearm and drugs in the car. The man was taken to hospital but his condition has not yet been made public. WARNING VIDEO IS INTENSE AND NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN
