The man who police said dragged a Chandler police officer with his car and was shot at by police before fleeing into the desert has self-surrendered.

The Chandler Police Department said Allen Pedro contacted the Gila River Police Department, who then called Chandler police. They coordinated and Pedro surrendered to Chandler police in the area of Interstate 10 and Chandler Boulevard just before 3 p.m on Wednesday.
