The search continues for a 'dangerous' man wanted for shooting at two Fresno police officers.

19-year-old Adell Vaughn has been on the run since Wednesday. His face is in a national database along with a warrant for his arrest and Lt. Burke Farrah says law enforcement agencies all over the country are on the lookout for him. Lt. Farrah said, "The only option he has is to turn himself in, we're not gonna stop."

Police say Vaughn shot at two undercover officers from the passenger side of a car on Wednesday. The officers fired back and forced the car off the road. The chase ended at an apartment complex near Peach and Olive. A man who lives nearby says he was standing outside and witnessed everything. "I'm hiding behind the wall-- shoot, I don't want to get shot," the man said.

Moments later, Vaughn ran away but officers arrested his driver, a man named Miles Banks. Officers were originally after him for another shooting. Investigators got a statement from him, they searched the area for hours and followed tips to places where Vaughn was believed to be hiding with no luck. "We talked with family members and their only desire is for him to be safe and to have his day in court and that's what we want for him too," Lt. Farrah said.

Police say Vaughn is a dangerous man but they're hoping the search will end peacefully. "That would be the best thing for him, you know what they say, you can run but you can't hide-- sooner or later, they gonna get you," A witness said
