Three suspects were arrested Sunday evening following a pursuit that started with a traffic stop in Koreatown and ended at the North Hollywood subway and bus station.
The incident started just after 10 p.m. when Los Angeles police officers stopped a white Toyota sedan at Western Avenue and Third Street, said Sgt. P. Prevost of the LAPD’s Olympic Station. The reason for the traffic stop was not immediately disclosed.
The officers saw a passenger armed with a handgun as they approached the car and told all three suspects to put their hands in the air, but the car sped away, Prevost said.
The suspects got on the northbound Hollywood (101) Freeway, transitioned to the 170 Freeway and got off at Oxnard Street, he said. They bailed out at the transit station at Lankershim and Chandler boulevards.
The driver was arrested near the B-Line subway, one passenger was arrested above ground and the second passenger got on a train only to be arrested at the next stop, Universal Station, Prevost said.
