Undercover police tracked down the passenger of a car, but when they attempted to pull the vehicle over the man exited and began running.

According to police, the man ran toward a gasoline station, then into an intersection, where he began shooting at officers, KGO reported.

"He pulled a gun," Vanessa Campos told KGO. "They (police) told him to drop it and he fired shots at the officers so they fired back at him."
