Posted: Updated:
Yorba Linda, CA -

A suspect was shot by a Deputy at the Savi Ranch shopping center in Yorba Linda, despite being shot he led deputies on a wild chase onto the 91 freeway hitting other cars along the way.

A suspect led Orange County Sheriff Deputies on a wild chase that ended with this scene on the 91 freeway eastbound just before Green River.

"It looked like that first wheel on the passenger front side was about to come off.  As i got a closer look, there was sparks shooting out," said Art Ruiz, who witnessed the chase.

The Sheriff's Department says the chase started with a shooting at the Savi Ranch shopping center in Yorba Linda.

"The suspect suffered a gunshot wound and the deputy was not injured," said Lt. Jeff Hallock, with the OC Sheriff's Dept.

It's unclear what led to the shooting, but investigators were on the scene for hours. 

Even though the shopping center was busy with customers, luckily no one else was hurt in the shooting or chase except the suspect.

Despite being shot, the driver of the Escalade led deputies on that chase and it appears he hit other cars on the freeway– the Escalade even lost a rearview mirror.

"One of the officers was on a motorcycle he stopped and go. Got right off and pulled his gun out.  Then im like ok he's not in trouble, he's the trouble," said Ruiz.

The suspect was apprehended and taken to a local hospital.
