The chase started as a pursuit of a man in a stolen car. When the suspect took off on foot, police reported they believed he was holding a rifle.
The man was seen from AIR7HD running over rooftops in the 8900 block of Langdon Avenue.
At one point, he jumped from one roof, over the top of a fence, to another roof.
Eventually he jumped to the ground and managed to run out of sight.
He eluded police for less than an hour before he was found hiding in a shed and taken into custody.
He did not appear to be holding a gun as he was running on the rooftops.
