The man behind the wheels of last night's car chase is unofficially identified as Mustafa "Moe" Mustafa. His name has not been released by authorities but family members and police sources told the LA Times his identity. After shooting himself when SWAT team members surrounded the car, he was transported in very critical condition to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Last night's car chase began shortly before 8 p.m. and was widely suspected to be Chris Brown and then DJ Khaled. The LAPD continued to say throughout the incident the suspect was not a high profile person.
