A MAN is holding people hostage inside a Los Angeles supermarket after shooting his girlfriend.
Footage from the scene showed people escaping out a store window and door. She was pronounced dead at the scene, according to LAPD officials, who said the woman had been "struck by gunfire". He took several hostages, but armed officers surrounded the building and fired shots into the supermarket. "The suspect was located via LoJack and a pursuit ensued at which point the suspect fired multiple rounds at pursuing officers", the LAPD tweeted in a thread after the incident concluded. "I was at the Silverlake Trader Joe's but I got out and am fine".
Five hostages were freed as the suspect walked out of the store in handcuffs, according to eyewitnesses. She was initially taken to a hospital in grave condition, and after surgery was upgraded to critical condition, the police chief said.
Officers were able to track the auto using LoJack - a stolen vehicle tracking system - and officers tried to stop the suspect in Hollywood, but the man refused to pull over, Moore said.
"An unknown number of people have been removed", Montgomery said. She has not been identified. Police said she suffered a graze wound to her head and is expected to survive.
