Porterville man fires at deputies before escaping
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- 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.
