Los Angeles, CA – A gunman who opened fire on a group of people, grazing a 14-year-old boy in the head, was fatally shot by police after he broke into a woman’s home and took her hostage on Friday night (video below).
Officers were able to see the suspect through a window as he held a gun to the hostage’s head, according to police.
A neighbor directly across from the apartment recorded the incident and posted the footage to Twitter.
“Based on the already incredibly violent actions & fearing the suspect was going to kill the hostage, SWAT entered the apartment,” the LAPD said.
