KTLA in Los Angeles broadcast what appears to be a live shooting this afternoon as a suspect police say stole a van was taken down by police. The network didn’t provide much information after that, and obviously cut away quickly—to the search for an additional suspect, it turns out; we’ll update as more information…
Los Angeles never fails to disappoint. Here’s some San Fernando Valley action from this evening, in which a carjacking suspect gets cornered after a PIT maneuver and proceeds to go straight GTA, hopping into the police cruiser. She didn’t get far!
Here’s a gent leading cops on a police chase who can be seen hopping out of his truck, attacking a dude on a motorcycle, failing to abscond with said motorcycle, and then getting back in his truck and speeding away. You can keep up with the chase here, at KNXV.
A random pedestrian news outlets alternately referred to as “heroic” and “crazy” brought a wild Los Angeles police chase to an end as he stepped in front of the suspect’s car, ending the hour-long pursuit.

Here is a man in California (natch) who is accused of trying to run over an Ontario police officer with his dump truck. They haven't managed to catch him yet, even though he drove into a gas station—and then out of that gas station through the same entrance.
