Salas refused to comply with Legaretta’s commands and led the officer on a brief foot pursuit. Salas then entered Legaretta’s unmarked police vehicle and began to drive recklessly in the parking lot.

At that point Legaretta fired at least one round at Salas in an attempt to stop his action. Salas then drove the stolen unit onto La Fonda Drive and into a concrete drainage canal as he fled the area.
