Watch: Police Officer And Ride-Along Come Under Barrage Of Gunfire

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. On Monday, police said detectives were continuing their investigation into the shooting that was captured on a dash camera inside the police cruiser.

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.”

    this is why ride-alongs are a bad idea.

      That’s why they sign a waiver, and this also gave the madam a Birdseye view of what police deal with as opposed to sitting in a basement speculating about what they the cops should have done and what that person would’ve done in the same circumstances (Such as crying like a lil girl) . No, I’m for ride along as this is one of the many ways it slaps the “The cops are doing this to us” taste out of their mouths.

        That I can agree with.
