Police were searching for two people who shot at a sheriff’s deputy Friday morning.

Sheriff Rene Rivera said a deputy attempted to pull over a truck on Gabaldon Road about 11:30 a.m. Friday. 
A suspect fired at the deputy and sped away. Police chased the truck through Los Chavez and Belen.
Rivera said two suspects were in the truck, possibly a man and a woman, one of whom may be Hispanic. 
He said the suspects fired at officers at least three times, and at one point firing four shots. 
Police later found the truck abandoned on the mesa west of Sauselito Estates and were searching for the suspects with the help of law enforcement and television news helicopters.
