Suspect in Los Angeles high-speed pursuit in custody after chase, armed standoff with police

Police have captured a wanted man who led them on a chase and then barricaded himself in a San Fernando Valley home with a rifle.

Television reports showed the suspect walk out with his hands up and then lie face-down on the grass in the backyard of a home with his hands behind his head and two dogs nearby. Seven SWAT officers converged on him five hours after the incident began.

The chase began about 10:15 a.m. when police tried to arrest a 40-year-old man for allegedly making criminal threats several days ago. But he drove off, leading to a 45-minute chase along several freeways that ended in North Hollywood.

Authorities shut down nearby freeway on-ramps, locked down schools and evacuated at least one school as police waited him out.
