A traffic stop in San Diego's Gaslamp District in front of the Convention Center led to a gunfight between an officer and the driver Monday night. The shootout was captured on live TV by a local news crew.

Just after 7 p.m. on West Harbor Drive, a FOX 5 crew was reporting live on Comic-Con’s plans to remain virtual this year when multiple gunshots rang out. FOX 5’s camera panned to show a man in front of a black sedan, pointing a gun in the direction of a police vehicle behind him before crouching down.

Harbor Police Department said their officers exchanged gunfire with the man, who has not been publicly identified, before arresting him.

The officer was not injured, nor was the suspect. A man nearby was hit by a stray bullet but a glasses case in his back pocket stopped the bullet from injuring him. Police called it a miracle.
