Wild chase follows alleged carjacking in Los Angeles


Multiple police departments were involved in a wild chase through the streets of Los Angeles on Friday afternoon that was punctuated by gunfire, according to law enforcement officials.

When the driver of a truck – a suspected carjacker – fled the police, bullets flew. Footage from KTLA-TV showed the vehicle’s windshield pitted from apparent gunfire.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff, the suspect fired at officers at least four times.

The chase began after a carjacking in Ontario, officials say.

Sources told The Times that a car thief was armed with an assault rifle and fired on patrol units.

The chase ended near 23rd Street and Western Avenue in Los Angeles when the pickup truck crashed into a light pole.

The suspect was ambushed by officers and arrested.
