A chase that began at around 7 p.m. in Glendale ended with a crash right on the world-famous Walk of Fame at Hollywood and Vine last night.

The police were in pursuit of 39-year-old Grigor Grigoryan, who is considered a "person of interest" in the investigation of his 36-year-old girlfriend's murder. Her body was found in a home on the 600 block of West Stocker Street in Glendale Friday afternoon, and authorities deemed the scene "suspicious."

According to MyFox Los Angeles, "Police sought Grigoryan for questioning, and he fled when police tried to perform a traffic stop."
