An armed suspect in California was arrested Friday after opening fire on authorities during a police chase that spanned three counties in and around Los Angeles.
The suspect initially led authorities on a chase through Riverside County before making his way through Orange and Los Angeles counties, FOX Los Angeles reported. Along the way, he crashed into a police cruiser and smashed into a pole.
At one point, the suspect stopped at an intersection near Lakewood, California as a group of children crossed the street.
He then allegedly opened fire on authorities around 3:45 p.m. He is believed to have opened fire earlier in the chase at a Corona police officer while trying to flee.
It was not clear what started the pursuit.
