A 19-year-old man with a felony warrant for his arrest was captured Monday in Fremont after he rammed a vehicle into a police car in East Palo Alto, prompting an officer to fire a gun at him, police said.
No injuries were reported.
About 2 p.m., San Mateo County Vehicle Theft Task Force agents tried to make a traffic stop as they investigated a stolen vehicle in the intersection of Rutgers and Fordham streets, said Lt. John Munsey, the task force commander.
But the driver -- later identified as Tywaun Livingston, of East Palo Alto -- did not stop and rammed the agents' cars with his vehicle, Munsey said.
One agent then fired a gun at Livingston, who sped away and dropped off a passenger before driving eastbound on the Dumbarton Bridge, police said.
About 30 minutes later, Fremont police discovered Livingston walking in the city's Northgate neighborhood and took him into custody without incident, Sgt. Jeff Campbell said.
Officers found the vehicle about a block away, near Paseo Padre Parkway and Fremont Boulevard, Campbell said.
He was arrested on suspicion of vehicle theft, assault with a deadly weapon on an officer, possession of stolen property and driving in disregard for safety of persons while fleeing from police, authorities said.
Fremont police set up a perimeter to search for the passenger but officers later determined that he had been dropped off before Livingston crossed the bridge, Campbell said.
Police said they later discovered that Livingston had a felony warrant for his arrest on suspicion of drugs and weapons offenses.
