The Stockton Police Department is investigating an officer-involved shooting following a domestic violence report on Sunday afternoon in east Stockton.

Stockton police responded to a call shortly after 1 p.m. about a disturbance near Filbert and Washington streets. They found an injured female and chased after an unidentified man who tried to flee in a vehicle. The man ran into a patrol car and an uninvolved vehicle in the area, according to a press release.
