    Police on Thursday are investigating an officer-involved shooting incident in Daly City, where the an officer fired at a suspect who then allegedly dragged an officer down the street for a bit.

    Around 9 p.m. on Wednesday,  police officers conducted a traffic stop in the area of Crocker Avenue and Brunswick Street as part of a San Mateo County Gang Task Force operation, according to Daly City police Sgt. Harold Rolfes.

    During the stop, one officer stopped the driver of a white Chrysler 300 for when the driver started to drive away, dragging the officer a short distance, Rolfes said. The traffic stop was routine, Rolfes said, but he did not specify why this driver was deemed suspicious.

    A second officer, who was acting as cover, fired a weapon at the Chrysler, police said.

    The suspect  took off, police said, and was last seen heading north on Brunswick Street, police said.

    Police did not know if the suspect inside the Chrysler was injured in the shooting. The officer who was dragged suffered minor injuries, Rolfes said.
