I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

Suspect drives stolen police cruiser through Alhambra, SGV; Chase ends in fatality

A man stole a police car Sunday night and led officers on a chase that spanned Alhambra, parts of the San Gabriel Valley, and several freeways. The chase ended with officers shooting and killing the suspect, according to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune.
The incident began in West Covina, where officers responded to a request for a welfare check. They met with a West Covina man who, after the check, requested a ride across town. He was given the ride. As he was being dropped off he darted into the vacant driver’s seat and sped off with the car. 
The chase reached up to triple-digit speeds. The suspect drove through parts of Temple City, Alhambra, Hollywood, Universal City and Glendale, according to CBS LA.
The chase ended in an alleyway near Jackson and Colorado Streets in Glendale, reports LAist. The suspect was cornered by authorities. As he attempted to reverse he was rammed by another police car. Authorities then shot at the suspect and killed him. He was pronounced dead at the scene. According to LAist, only West Covina Police officers were involved in the shooting.
