Authorities claim that he afterwards left with Savannah Graziano, a 15-year-old.
According to San Bernardino County Sheriff Shannon Dicus, authorities got a call on Tuesday morning from someone reporting seeing Graziano's white vehicle.
A pursuit started as deputies headed to the car to inspect it. Graziano allegedly started shooting at the deputies, "placing multiple shots through the window of the patrol vehicle
From Highway 58 to Interstate 15, when a second police unit joined the chase, it continued. Graziano fired several shots at the car, disabling it briefly, according to Dicus.
