Gunman in Trader Joe's standoff surrenders, 1 killed

Around 1:30 p.m., police spotted the suspect driving his grandmother's auto in the Hollywood area and a pursuit began.

Police said the suspect shot his grandmother and girlfriend on Saturday before leading police on a vehicle chase that ended when he crashed into a pole and ran inside the supermarket as bullets from officers shattered the front doors.

At approximately 6:40 the Silver Lake section of the city, five hostages departed with the suspect in handcuffs.

They say they chased the vehicle and exchanged gunfire with the man, who crashed into a pole outside the supermarket and then ran inside.

Montgomery said Hollywood officers attempted to pull the suspect over but he opened fire during a pursuit. All were in fair condition with no life-threatening injuries, a spokeswoman said.

Don Kohles was walking into the Trader Joe's in the city's Silver Lake section Saturday afternoon when a auto being chased by police crashed into a pole just outside. The gunman fled from cops and took the second female victim with him.

#UPDATE: We have successfully taken the suspect into custody without incident.

People frantically tried to flee from the store and some were seen climbing through windows while others darted through the back door.

Inside the store the suspect took "numerous victims, of citizens as well as store employees, hostage", Moore said.

Police officers use a mirror to see inside a Trader Joe's store in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles on Saturday. One person was injured, reports say.

"Then this guy comes out of the vehicle and starts running toward TJs", Kohles said, referring to the grocery store. After an hours-long standoff, in which police were communicating with the suspect, he eventually requested handcuffs and cuffed himself before surrendering, police said.

Mayor Eric Garcetti confirmed one woman was shot and killed inside the store.

"She appeared lifeless", Dunlop said.
