SAN DIEGO — A 40-year-old motorist who refused to yield for a traffic stop Thursday led officers on a meandering hour-long chase that ended with him critically wounded in a fusillade of police gunfire after he allegedly brandished a handgun on a Mount Hope street, police said.

The suspect, who had a female passenger with him, sped off about 8:30 a.m. when a San Diego Police Department sergeant tried to pull him over on Grape Street in Oak Park for using a cellphone while he was driving, SDPD public affairs Lt. Kevin Mayer said.

While chasing the 2002 Saturn sedan, police determined that it matched the description of one linked to a shooting that wounded two men in a Mountain View-area neighborhood Monday night.
