The Tulare County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man accused of shooting at deputies.

Authorities say Daryl Austin Young confronted deputies who went to a home in Porterville on Saturday. They say Young was standing in the doorway, holding a small handgun and challenging the deputies to shoot. Instead, they tazed him.

As young fell to the ground, investigators say he fired one shot, hitting a cabinet, then he escaped out of a window.

Authorities say Young is still on the run and should be considered armed and dangerous.
