The officer was not injured. Later in the day, patrol officers found a stolen Chevy Suburban that they believe was driven by the shooter. They continued to search for the man with the help of a police dog.

Police believe the gunman may have been involved in an attempted car theft about 20 minutes before the Suburban was stolen.
