Deadly LA market shooting started with domestic feud

Trader Joe's

A feud between a man and his grandmother over his girlfriend exploded into violence that ultimately led to him taking hostages inside a Los Angeles supermarket.

Police amassed outside the store, and at 5:30 p.m., at least three people who appeared to be customers came out of the store with their hands in the air - apparently hostages who were released or shoppers who had managed to elude the gunman.

The man was fleeing police after a shooting in which an elderly woman and a young woman were victims, Los Angeles police Officer Mike Lopez told CNN.

Los Angeles police are responding to "an active incident" at a Trader Joe's in the city's Silver Lake neighborhood on Saturday, after a suspect opened fire outside the grocery store.

Officers spotted the suspect's auto near Hollywood and tried to pull him over, but the man refused to stop and led officers on a chase. He'd allegedly shot his grandmother multiple times before the vehicle chase began. When police returned fire, Field and others got down on the ground, he said.

He took hostages as scores of firefighters and police converged on the scene.

The suspect walked out of the Trader Joe's in the city's Silver Lake neighbourhood with a cluster of hostages Saturday afternoon (Sunday NZT) and was immediately surrounded by officers.

Another woman, 20, was found inside the crashed Toyota and taken to hospital. SWAT teams are also on the scene.

People frantically tried to flee from the store and some were seen climbing through windows, jumping down about 8 feet (2.44 meters), and others darted through the back door.

A TraderJoe's employee is comforted after a suspect barricaded inside the supermarket in Silverlake, Los Angeles, on July 21, 2018.

"Our thoughts are with her family, and our Crew Members and customers who experienced this terrifying and unimaginable ordeal", the statement said.

He says the situation is still unfolding and it isn't clear if employees are still inside the store.

After an hours-long standoff, in which police were communicating with the suspect, he eventually requested handcuffs and cuffed himself before surrendering, police said.

Don Kohles, 91, told CNN he saw the vehicle crash into a fire hydrant or a utility pole in front of the Trader Joe's.

"The bullets were flying everywhere through the front of the store and across the parking lot", he said. At one point, President Trump tweeted he was keeping an eye on the situation and that LAPD was working with federal authorities on finding a peaceful solution.

Witness Devin Field, a writer for Jimmy Kimmel's late night talk show, said: 'I was walking in when a vehicle crashed running from the police crashed into street lamp in front of the entrance.

Employees helped several people escape the store through windows with a rope ladder and through the rear of the building.

The driver got out, and police started firing at him as he ran toward the supermarket.

Her brother, Albert Corado, had asked for information about his sister on Twitter during the incident, and later confirmed she had died.
