LA police arrest suspect after shop siege

"We have successfully taken the suspect into custody without incident", the LAPD tweeted, saying officers were "clearing the location". Investigators continued combing the area the day after an armed chase suspect ran into the market and held several people hostage for about three hours, starting around 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

Shortly afterwards the suspect, a man in his late teens, fled in a 2015 Toyota Camry and was followed by police.

Police said the older woman was the suspect's grandmother, and he was driving her vehicle when he wrecked it near the Trader Joe's.

Lopez said he did not know whether any shots had been fired by the police or suspect.

Sgt. Barry Montgomery said the situation was still unfolding but officers were communicating with the suspect.

"There is an active police incident at the Trader Joe's near the intersection of Hyperion Ave and Griffith Park Blvd in #Silverlake". She died at the scene.

LAPD spokesman Mike Lopez said the suspect had fired at officers multiple times as he fled the original shooting in the south of the city earlier on Saturday afternoon. One person was injured, reports say. Officials said they had 18 ambulances and 100 firefighters staged at the scene.

"Our hostage negotiators believed they had established a good rapport with him", the chief said.

An unidentified woman was killed in the incident. "And (the police) returned some fire at him, but he ran straight in [to the Trader Joe's]".

"I regret to inform you that there is one fatality that occurred inside, of a woman", Garcetti said, without identifying the victim.

Trump, Putin Discussed 'Concrete Proposals' On Ukraine, Envoy Says
In return, Mr Putin wanted permission for Russian Federation to interview Americans the Kremlin accuses of unspecified crimes. That next meeting may be at the White House. "Obama didn't do it", Trump told CNBC in an interview at the White House.

Police said Gene Evin Atkins, 28, was the man who held officers at bay for three hours on Saturday and engaged in a gunbattle in which the store manager was killed when she was caught in the crossfire.

"And I see the two front glass doors shot out".

He could hear others around him sobbing as the man ran toward the back of the store and yell at people, but Kohles said he never heard any more gunshots.

A large number of police and rescue personnel were responding to a Los Angeles supermarket, amid numerous media reports of possible gunshots.

"The bullets were flying everywhere - through the front of the store and across the parking lot", Kohles told the Los Angeles Times. The employee did not appear to be hurt, Kohles said. President Donald Trump confirmed LAPD is working with federal law enforcement.

More gunfire ensued before Atkins crashed into a pole outside the supermarket.

Another witness, Devin Field, tweeted that he was going inside the Trader Joe's when the auto crashed and the man "got out shooting".

"Gunman walked in shooting". The suspect took numerous hostages, including shoppers and employees. Employees snuck out through back emergency exits. Customers ran out of the store, he added.

A TraderJoe's employee is comforted after a suspect barricaded inside the supermarket in Silverlake, Los Angeles, on July 21, 2018.
