The incident began early Friday morning after officers were called to the scene of a domestic violence incident. After arriving, a suspect fled in a vehicle.
Officers attempted to stop the vehicle; however, at one point the suspect exited his car and opened fire on the officers.
One round from the suspect struck a Huntington Beach police officer but miraculously hit the officer's badge.
The officer was treated at a local hospital but was otherwise unharmed.
A high-speed pursuit to capture the suspect ensued but ended in a fiery crash along the Cajon Pass when the suspect lost control of his car.
The suspect died on scene.
