PASADENA — Police arrested a man on suspicion of attempted murder early Saturday after an officer-involved shooting in which no one was injured, authorities said.
Marcus Chaney, 24, of Pasadena was being held in lieu of $501,409, according to Pasadena police and county booking records.
The incident took place about 12:50 a.m. at Los Robles Avenue and Buckeye Street, Pasadena police officials said in a written statement.
Officers spotted a speeding car and pulled it over when the driver got out and ran, Police Chief Phillip Sanchez said.
While fleeing, Chaney, “brandished a firearm in a manner threatening to the officer’s life,” Lt. Tracey Ibarra said.
The officer officer fired a single shot, but did not strike Chaney, police said. The suspect then discarded his gun and continued running.
Police set up a search perimeter and found Chaney during a yard-to-yard search, officials said.
