A hostage situation is underway at a Trader Joe’s in Silverlake, Los Angeles after a man being chased by police jumped out of their car and ran into the store on Saturday afternoon.
The vehicle was seen wrapped around a pole and police rescued a 20-year-old woman left inside. Her injuries have not been confirmed, but are believed to include a gunshot wound, NBC reported.
The article goes on to state the following:
Law enforcement sources told the Los Angeles Times the woman is his girlfriend, and he had fired at officers before he ran inside the supermarket.
LAPD told KCAL the suspect had shot his grandmother and girlfriend about 1.30pm, before fleeing the scene in a 2015 Toyota Camry.
Officers began pursuing the suspect in Hollywood, and they arrived at the supermarket on Hyperion Avenue about 3.30pm.
Law enforcement are working to evacuate employees and customers, including small children, with at least one person seen fleeing with injuries.
While many were seen fleeing from the supermarket, it is believed there are still as many as 30 people inside.
