PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Pasadena police are searching for two men who crashed into an unmarked car driven by two plainclothes deputies from the Los Angeles County sheriff's department, then shot at them.
Police spokeswoman Tracey Ibarra says in statement that the incident occurred around 12:20 p.m. Thursday when city police detectives were conducting a joint investigation with the deputies.
The deputies saw the suspect's vehicle, which abruptly collided with their car. The men fled on foot, firing shots at the deputies, who returned fire.
Ibarra says the officers were not wounded, but it is unknown whether either suspect was wounded.
Pasadena police set up a containment area to search for the suspects.
