CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Long Beach have shot and killed a man during a running gun battle.
The Long Beach Press-Telegram (http://bit.ly/1fF5vfo ) says a woman flagged down a patrol car at around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday and said that a gunman had threatened to kill her and her family.
Police say they later spotted the man — who may have been the woman's ex-boyfriend — at a gas station in neighboring Carson but he shot at them. He then ran to nearby park, where more shots were fired.
Police say they finally shot the man in a Carson backyard as he tried to break into an occupied home.
His name hasn't been released.
