Police had a deadly confrontation with a carjacking suspect in San Gabriel, California early Tuesday morning.
It all started about 2:30 in the morning, when a parking enforcement officer was writing a ticket in the 6900 block of Rosemead Blvd. Officials say a man, who was described as homeless, came up from behind and hit the officer in the head, knocking her to the ground.
The suspect took off with the officer’s vehicle and drove to a Temple City McDonald’s, where authorities caught up with him about two hours later.
The car owner who was getting a ticket earlier that morning is the one who called 911, officials said. Nearby business owners also told police that lots of transients are known to wander up and down that street.
When deputies arrived at the McDonald’s, they had a brief struggle with the suspect. Force was used, but no shots were fired and no Taser was deployed, Lt. Steve Jauch told CBS2.
The man was handcuffed, when he suddenly became unresponsive. Investigators are waiting on the autopsy report to see how he died.
