High-speed chase leads LAPD through streets of San Fernando Valley

PACOIMA, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A high-speed chase led police through streets of the northeast San Fernando Valley during rush hour Monday afternoon.

Suspects could be seen throwing things from the vehicle.

The Los Angeles Police Department called off the chase at one point deeming it too dangerous to continue, but picked it up again shortly after.

Air7 showed video of the driver stopping twice to let passengers out. They could be seen running away from the vehicle.

The chase reached speeds of over 80 mph and the driver drove against traffic multiple times. The driver sped through a number of parking lots including one at a crowded Target store.

The initial call was about a man with a gun.

The suspect came to a stop and exited the car in Pacoima where he surrendered without incident. No injuries were reported.
