As the achievement states, you can only unlock this achievement as an LAPD detective, so trying to do this as a beat cop at the beginning won't work. I unlocked the achievement in the case "A marriage made in heaven" during the traffic desk.
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***
When you cut across the street during the chase and the suspect cuts right, stop and point your gun at him. There are other instances where you can do this during this chase, but this is where I personally got him. What you need to do to fire a warning shot is to aim at the suspect running away and you will notice a small circle start to fill as you aim at the suspect.
Once it fills, a cutscene will play out and you should get the achievement. It is important to note that you must not manually shot the suspect yourself as that will not work.

If you mess up, you can simply catch up to him and let him shoot the innocent civilian that he holds hostage in order to restart the checkpoint. It will say "case failed" but I didn't notice that it has any sort of affect on a 5 star case rating. The achievement will unlock after the ending cutscene when properly executed.
