A suspect connected to a deadly shooting in Los Angeles previously this year was apprehended Friday after apparently carjacking a guy and getting away authorities while the victim was still knotted in his seat belt, cops and witnesses stated.
The victim passed away after the suspect, Joshua Reneau, 31, dragged him for more than 2 miles throughout the cops pursuit, the Los Angeles Cops Department stated in a press release.
Reneau was recorded after crashing into numerous squad cars, turning his cars and truck and barricading himself within, the department stated.
He was hospitalized and is anticipated to be scheduled on suspicion of murder, according to the release.
The body of the carjacking victim, who was not determined, was discovered approximately 3 homes south of the crash website in Inglewood, the department stated. He was noticable dead at the scene.
The male had actually ended up being captured in his seat belt when Reneau attempted to require him from his automobile, the department stated.
Tina Atkins informed NBC Los Angeles that she was getting her kids at an after-school program when she saw a “cars and truck coming directly at us with a dead body hanging from the bottom.”
“I hopped the curb with my kids in the cars and truck due to the fact that I didn’t desire them to strike me,” she informed the station.
The chase started after authorities attempted to apprehend Reneau in connection with July a break-in and deadly shooting in the San Fernando Valley, the department stated.
2 other suspects connected to the July criminal offenses were apprehended Thursday, and when officers attempted to pull over an automobile Reneau was in on Friday, the automobile apparently ran away, the department stated.
The cars and truck crashed and Reneau apparently carjacked an SUV, NBC Los Angeles reported. After fatally dragging its chauffeur and crashing, he apparently declined to give up, the department stated. He was apprehended after authorities dispatched a SWAT system to the scene, the department stated.
Reneau is anticipated in court on Monday, the department stated. It wasn’t right away clear if he has a legal representative to speak on his behalf.
