LOS ANGELES (CNS) – A person possibly connected to a homicide led police on a circuitous chase through South Los Angeles Tuesday.
According to Los Angeles police Officer Liliana Preciado, a murder suspect was arrested early Tuesday afternoon in the 1200 block of East 100th Street in South Los Angeles, but as that suspect was being taken into custody, another person sped from the scene, prompting the pursuit.
The connection between the person leading the chase and the in-custody homicide suspect was not immediately clear.
The chase suspect, driving a silver-gray Dodge Neon sedan with Oregon license plates, initially drove on the Glenn Anderson (105) Freeway, then moved onto city streets through South Los Angeles, occasionally driving on the wrong side of the street as he circled around the area.
The chase was continuing as of 1:30 p.m.
