Teen Girl Shot Before Police Pursuit Identified
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Authorities have identified a teenage girl whom police say was shot and killed by a man who led officers on a half-hour chase that ended about a block from the shooting.
Christina Salazar, 17, of Los Angeles, died at a hospital after the shooting Wednesday afternoon near Maple Avenue and Adams Boulevard, coroner’s Chief Craig Harvey said.
The suspect fled in a silver-colored Ford Expedition and led officers on a chase over surface streets that ended when he stopped about a half hour later. The suspect, whose name has not been released, surrendered on 27th Street just west of Maple Avenue.
