Police chase in Long Beach ends with gunfight

LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Investigators say an armed stolen car suspect who crashed into a Long Beach house at the end of a police chase has been shot to death after opening fire on officers.

KTTV-TV says the California Highway Patrol was chasing a white BMW stolen in Redondo Beach on Interstate 405 when the BMW took an off-ramp in Long Beach early Thursday.

Long Beach officers took over the pursuit and the BMW driver lost control of the car and slammed into a vacant home.

Police say the suspect then opened fire and the officers shot back, killing the man.

No officers were hurt.

The suspect's name is being withheld.
