When officers arrived, police said one of the men, identified as Hawthorne, was exiting a second story room where he allegedly had a gun.
Police said an officer called out to Hawthorne from the parking lot but he ignored them.
Officers followed the man as he walked along the second story balcony before jumping down from the balcony, nearly landing on the officer, police said.
The officer tried to detain Hawthorne, but police said he escaped and ran to a Kia dealership at 4325 Sonoma Blvd., where he surprised a person and stole the person’s vehicle.
That’s when Hawthorne allegedly drove at an officer and the officer shot at him, police said.

10 inches tall and weighing approximately 180 pounds. He is considered armed and dangerous.
