A search is underway for a shooter who sprayed gunfire at a Madera, Calif., police officer and a passenger during a ride-along on Sunday.
The officer was not injured; the passenger suffered some minor cuts from broken glass during the shooting, according Lt. Gino Chiaramonte of the Madera Police Department.

At one point, the passenger says, “He is not stopping. You’re kidding me.”
As the officer follows the speeding car, the passenger screams, “He has a gun. No, no, no, no, no.”
That’s when the officer reports shots were fired.
Seconds later, about nine shots were fired at the officer’s vehicle.
Several other shots were heard as the officer pulled over and the passenger sobs.
“Are you OK?” the officer asks the passenger.
The officer then speeds up and reports that he was “taking fire.”
