MADERA - The lesson that all police officers know proved true in Madera Sunday morning, there is no such thing as a routine traffic stop. During a early morning stop of a new white Mazda SUV on the west side of Madera, one Madera police officer and his civilian ride-along passenger began a high speed pursuit of a suspect through a residential area that ended in gunfire and a disabled police vehicle.

Around 4:30am Sunday morning a police officer, who the department has yet to identify, was attempting to pull the suspect over at Howard Road and Mainberry Drive when the suspect's just took off at speeds of over 50 mph. The chase went through two stop signs before it entered the Venturi subdivision across Sunset Avenue.
