Here on the local radio talk show, it was mentioned that the Police dispatcher told the officers that the suspect was armed, dangerous and being sought for murder.
It was also mentioned on the talk show that the guy in the suv had his radio on and didn't know he was being followed until the officer pulled in front of him...probably began shooting at that point and the guy tried getting the hell out of there not realizing that he was "blocked" in. At that point spent the next few minutes "crapping" his pants as he tried to curl into a ball under the dash board!
Don't know how true the KFI 640 talk show progarm was!
They did release the radio communication informing the officers of this man being wanted, armed, and dangerous!
