Police have located the abandoned car of the fugitive involved in an officer-involved shooting on Saturday, but they still haven't found suspect John Jesse Samora.
The shooting occurred at 2:48 a.m. on Saturday when Unified Police Department officers spotted a 1990 Lincoln Town Car in the area of 5400 S. 4015 West. The vehicle was known to be driven by Samora. The driver, who matched Samora's description, tried to evade the officers by pulling into a parking lot near 4100 W. 5400 South.
When Samora pulled into a parking spot, the officers approached the car on foot, officials say. Samora allegedly drove from the spot and tried to hit the officers with his car. One of the officers fired a single shot as the car came toward him, but Samora was able to leave the parking lot.
