A driver chasing after a suspected armed gun and Molotov cocktail was detained after a collision with Paramount area officials on Thursday morning.
The follow-up started around 7:45 a.m. in the Bellflower neighborhood near Lakewood Boulevard and Walnut Street, Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department Sgt. Salles said.
The follow-up continued for a while, prompting officials at one point to enter surveillance mode, Salles said.
The car finally stopped at San Jose Avenue, near Myrrh Street.
Sky5 is above this car, a silver Acura with broken windows amid conflicts with the authorities.
The suspect, who climbed into the back seat of the car after stopping, apparently started burning things inside the car.
After the lights went out, the suspect remained in the vehicle and refused to leave, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff̵7;s Department said.
The video shows the armored vehicle arriving around 9 a.m. to help remove the suspect from the vehicle.
The Sheriff’s Department tweeted shortly after 11:00 that the suspect was detained and the neighborhood was safe.
