Possible shooting suspect leads police chase in LA; 4 in custody

A group of suspects who were possibly connected to a shooting are in handcuffs – but not before leading a dangerous police chase that stretched across downtown Los Angeles and the Westlake neighborhoods.

The suspects led authorities on a chase Tuesday evening.

Over the course of the chase, the suspect driver hit and sideswiped several cars as they tried to evade the cops.

The suspects – four people – eventually stopped the car in Westlake and ditched the vehicle, prompting a footchase between them and the police.

Officials did not say which of the suspects were wanted in a shooting or if all three of them were identified as shooting suspects. Three of the suspects were detained in the footchase and a fourth suspect sprinted towards the direction of a nearby school in Westlake.

The fourth suspect was eventually taken into custody.

It is unknown which shooting case the suspects were possibly linked to.
