HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA) — Los Angeles Police Department officers were involved in the pursuit of a woman wanted for potential assault with a deadly weapon on Friday evening.
Initial reports disclosed that the woman was involved in a parking dispute, in which she pointed her gun at another person. When LAPD officers arrived on scene, she was cooperative, until she entered her vehicle and led the police on a short chase.
The pursuit began in Hollywood, before the suspect led authorities throughout the Southland.
Just after 9:20 p.m., the suspect stopped the vehicle, a black Honda, prompting a standoff with authorities. The vehicle stopped at Kenmore Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard in East Hollywood.
