Police Kill Suspect After Car Chase Shootout
Police shot and killed a man early this morning after a wild car chase shootout around Cypress Park, during which an assault suspect fired a shotgun at police and LAPD officers returned fire.
Police saw a man they suspected of an October attack sitting in a pickup truck at Broadway and Griffith around 11:45 pm Saturday. But when they tried to pull him over, he fired a shotgun at them and drove off, the LAPD told City News Service. The suspect fired at officers twice more as police gave chase, and officers returned fire.
Finally, after a 15-minute chase, officers stopped the suspect's car with a PIT maneuver - the police tactic of nudging a suspect's car with a police car, causing the suspect's car to swerve out of control.
The suspect then leveled the shotgun at officers again and officers shot him dead, police told CNS. The man's name has not yet been released.
