3 in custody after chase of reported stolen vehicle, standoff in Hollywood

A pursuit of a reported stolen vehicle Friday through the Hollywood area ended in a standoff with police.

Los Angeles police were chasing a newer model, silver sedan with three suspects inside. The vehicle was reported stolen from a dealership.

Around 11:30 a.m., the pursuit came to a stop in the parking lot of an auto body shop located in the 7600 block of West Sunset Boulevard.

Two of the suspects then got out of the vehicle and were taken into custody, authorities said. A third suspect remained in the driver's seat, resulting in a standoff with police.

Several Los Angeles police units arrived and broke the vehicle's window to gain access to the car.

The suspect appeared to resist to officers attempting to make an arrest and was transported to a nearby hospital by the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The area of Sunset Boulevard near Stanley Avenue was closed to traffic during the incident.
