SAN DIEGO -- A high-speed car chase and shooting were all caught on camera in California. 

Here's video of the hour-long pursuit in San Diego that ended with the suspect in critical condition. It started yesterday when police say they tried to pull the driver over because he's wanted in connection with a shooting.

He had a passenger in the car during the chase, but at some point he let her out. Take a look as police use spikes on the road to stop him.

Then, officers opened fire.

"Give him a chance or something, but they never did. They started shooting at him like crazy. And that's it. I went on the ground. At that moment, in my mind, I thought he was dead already," Frankie Martinez, a witness, said.

This video appears to show what could be officers in the direct line of fire. It’s over, with the suspect on the ground. Police say he pointed a gun at officers and, fearing for their safety, they opened fire.

At last check, the suspect remained in critical condition.Hour-long car chase in California ends in gun fight
