They knew that, and they had already killed people so they didn't care much about going to jail.
From the article:

Two suspects were killed, and 15 people were injured, including 10 policemen. None of the injuries incurred during the hour-long shootout was "life threatening," Los Angeles Police Chief Willie Williams said.

The suspects had not killed anybody, although they might have been trying to.

if you are worried about a gun fight with someone wearing body armour do your best i=mpersonation of Jessie Owens and take a head shout from 50 plus yards out with a rifle
It is better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6

I took a .40 JHP round on a IIIa vest.
It hurt like hell, but I was not incapacitated by the hit. Sure, over two months later I still have a mark from it, but the important thing is it didn't come close to "knocking me out".
