Bicyclist Shoots California Officer in Torso, Suspect at Large

May 23, 2016  | 

A West Covina, CA, officer approached a man who was riding a bicycle Friday night when the man started shooting. The officer was struck in the torso but returned fire, officials said. It was unclear whether the suspect was wounded before he fled the scene and escaped. A multi-agency manhunt began immediately afterward.

Deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Special Enforcement Bureau continued the search Sunday for 47-year-old suspect Jose Luis Chavez, reports the San Gabriel Valley Tribune.

Authorities announced the search was concluded about 6 p.m.; however, the suspect remained at large.

"We are actively investigating and searching for this suspect," Deputy Kimberly Alexander of the sheriff's Information Bureau said. "He is armed and dangerous."

Meanwhile, the injured officer was recovering well after suffering a through-and-through wound to his abdomen, West Covina Police Chief David Faulkner said.
