Police Chase: Attack with deadly gun suspect in custody after LA chase
EAST LOS ANGELES (KABC) — A suspect wanted for assault with a deadly weapon has been taken into custody after leading authorities on a chase through surface streets and freeways near downtown Los Angeles.
Investigators tell Eyewitness News it all started in East LA, where the suspect, identified only as a Hispanic male, pointed a gun at a neighbor around 3:13 p.m
The suspect, who was driving an older-model dark-colored SUV, was driven erratically on several occasions.
AIR7 HD was in pursuit downtown when the suspect sped past other drivers, narrowly missing them several times.
The suspect then stopped at the end of Loma Road in Montebello. He was seen storming out of the vehicle and running through a resident’s yard on Lincoln Avenue.
At one point, the suspect appeared to have hid in nearby bushes for about 30 minutes.
He finally came out, raised his arms and surrendered to officers without further incident.
