Calif. Carjacking Suspect Brandishes Gun, Is Shot!!

LOS ANGELES — An armed carjacking suspect who had led police on an
odd, slow-speed chase through the streets of Los Angeles was shot and
killed at a gas station in the Koreatown section of LA. The suspect had
stopped the vehicle and “pulled out his revolver and pointed it at
people inside the store,” said LAPD Cmdr. Andy Smith in an article
posted on the website of the LA Times.
A video of the confrontation captured by a TV news helicopter shows
the decisive action taken by LAPD officers who put multiple rounds into
the stolen older-model Saturn vehicle. A bystander is seen diving for
cover between a nearby car and the gas pumps.
The suspect was killed, the bystander uninjured, and all officers
involved were safe following the incident. The gunman has not yet been
identified, but police did say a revolver was recovered from inside the
stolen vehicle.
