The suspect exited the freeway at Studebaker, and officers lost the vehicle, according to Marlene Arrona, of the Long Beach Police Department.

Long Beach police then located the vehicle and the chase began again, Arrona said.

The pursuit came to an end when the driver crashed into a vacant residential home in the 6400 block of Keynote Street.

“The suspect pointed a handgun at the officers, shot at the officers, and an officer-involved shooting occurred,” Arrona said.

The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. He has not been identified.
