LOS ANGELES (AP) — A wild Los Angeles police chase of a reckless motorist has ended with the shooting death of the suspect on an east San Fernando Valley freeway.
The investigation into the Wednesday night shooting shut down U.S. Route 101 in both directions for hours.
Northbound lanes reopened just before 3 a.m. Thursday, but southbound lanes in the Woodland Hills area remained closed at the 5 a.m. start of the morning commute.
Television helicopter cameras showed the 19-year-old driver, identified by KNX radio as Abdul Arian, attempting to make a U-turn into opposing traffic at the conclusion of the chase.
A squad car rammed the car and the suspect jumped out and ran, turning several times and pointing something at officers before he was shot. It’s unclear if he had a gun.
