Car Chase Suspect Apparently Armed with Assault Rifle

(Los Angeles, CA) -- A suspect who led police on a high speed chase through the streets of Los Angeles is now on foot in North Hollywood and brandishing what looks to be an assault rifle. The suspect reached speeds at or near 100 miles an hour as he weaved in and out of highway traffic. For some reason, he abandoned his vehicle, retrieved a weapon, and went into a residential neighborhood. He spent some time standing on top of a low garage before getting back on ground level.
