Murder suspect arrested after 100-mile California chase
GORMAN, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a murder suspect was arrested after a wild police chase that stretched more than 100 miles across Southern California.
Police in San Bernardino County say the pursuit began Wednesday after the suspect was spotted driving near where a woman was shot to death in Upland.
The suspect sped through red lights and led police and then California Highway Patrol officers on a chase on surface streets and freeways.
It ended in northern Los Angeles County when CHP officers struck his car, causing it to spin out. The suspect, 58-year-old Thomas Hill, was arrested on suspicion of murder. It wasn’t known if he has an attorney.
KNBC-TV reports the murder victim was not immediately identified.
