LA police arrest suspect after deadly shop siege:
Los Angeles police have arrested a suspect who earlier barricaded himself in a shop with about forty folks inside.
“We have successfully taken the suspect into custody without incident,” the LAPD tweeted after a three-hour siege.
People were seen fleeing the merchandiser Joe’s supermarket, some jumping from windows. One girl was killed.
The suspect earlier fired shots as police pursued his car. He crashed the car and ran inside the shop. The chase began when he had shot 2 ladies.
The suspect, who is believed to a 28-year-old African-American, gave himself up after crisis negotiations with police in the Silverlake area, the LAPD said.
UPDATE: Earlier today, officers went in pursuit of a suspect wanted in connection to a shooting. At the termination of the pursuit, an officer involved shooting occurred, and the suspect has barricaded himself inside a #TraderJoes in #Silverlake. https://t.co/fLAowNpgYL
