Officers witnessed an interaction between a woman and a 29-year-old man. The man allegedly began shooting and injured the woman.

He then man fled on foot and was confronted by police on Sandford Farm Drive. The man managed to escape the officers by stealing and fleeing in a police cruiser. The officers attempted to stop him, and one officer discharged his firearm at the cruiser.
