WEST COVINA, Calif. (AP) - The hunt continues for man suspected of shooting and wounding a West Covina police officer.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says Jose Luis Chavez is wanted on suspicion of attempted murder of an on-duty officer and is considered armed and dangerous.

Investigators believe the 47-year-old fired several rounds after the officer tried to detain him late Friday.

The officer was shot in the chest and was taken to a hospital. He is expected to survive.

Authorities say the officer fired back but they don’t know if Chavez was hit.
