LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police fatally shot a man early Tuesday morning after he allegedly went on a deadly rampage in the city’s downtown.
Authorities say the man shot several people — killing two of them, including a newlywed — seemingly at random before leading police on an hours-long chase that ended in a standoff on a freeway overpass.
Authorities say the man had been in a white Jeep Cherokee and refused pleas from police and a family member to surrender.
He shot at police during the standoff and one officer returned fire, killing him.
His death marks the second time LAPD officers have fatally shot a person in four days.
