SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Police in San Francisco have arrested a man suspected of shooting a police officer on Saturday afternoon and leading authorities on a high-speed chase through several cities from the East Bay to San Jose, a spokesman said Sunday.

Jeffrey Ruano, 50, a San Francisco resident, allegedly shot a 28-year-old police officer in the shoulder while trying to evade officers in the Mission District at around 2:45 p.m., San Francisco police Officer Gordon Shyy said.

The officer — who has been identified as Mission District Station Officer Adam Shaw — was taken to a hospital where he underwent surgery, Shyy said.

As of Sunday afternoon, Shaw was recovering in stable condition, Shyy said.

Ruano allegedly aimed his car at responding police officers as he sped off from the scene, police said.

Officers shot at the vehicle but the man was not wounded, and his car was found abandoned in Daly City a short time after the incident.

A subsequent investigation led police to the East Bay, where Ruano was identified in a white sedan with two female passengers at about 11 p.m.

The California Highway Patrol attempted to stop Ruano on eastbound Interstate Highway 80 at Carlson Boulevard in Richmond, but the suspect refused to yield, Shyy said.

The suspect then led officers on a chase from Richmond to Danville to San Jose, with speeds reaching up to 100 mph, police said.

Ruano was finally stopped in San Jose, where he and his two passengers were taken into custody at McKee Road and North 33rd Street.

Following questioning by San Francisco police, the two females were released, and Ruano was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, possession of ammunition, driving in excess of 100 mph, and evading officers.

The case remains under investigation by SFPD.
