According to ABC 7, the suspect led Lakewood sheriff's deputies on a short chase before crashing into a fire hydrant, sending a geyser into the air and water gushing onto the streets. Deputies opened fire as the situation escalated.
One suspect died at the scene. Details are still be sorted out at the scene.
Streets are totally blocked off in and around Artesia and Carmenita. The place is swarming with law enforcement officials and television news crews have arrived at the scene.

Neighbors are shocked over this situation.
These type of things just doesn't happen here. Pires Avenue has the most spectacular trees dotting their street in a city that is "Tree City USA!" The homes on this street are valued at $900,000 and over $1 million.
But, these are scary times we live in and no neighborhood is immune to violence.
