Standoff at LA Trader Joe's ends with one person dead, suspect i

The man, who has not been named by police, gave himself up after a three-hour standoff and was taken into custody. It was not immediately known where the woman was when she was shot.

Police say the man shot his grandmother seven times and wounded another woman, who he forced into a auto.

A large number of police and rescue personnel swarmed the Trader Joe's in the Silver Lake area Saturday afternoon and at least one person was injured but expected to survive.

He added that officers tried to pull the man over and were led on a pursuit. He had crashed a vehicle he was driving nearby after firing multiple rounds at officers pursuing him, police said.

"My wife and I shopped here nearly weekly when we lived near here", said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti who, along with new LAPD Chief Michel Moore and Los Angeles City Councilmember David Ryu, held a news conference at the scene around 7 p.m. shortly after the gunman finally surrendered.

He took hostages as scores of firefighters and police converged on the scene. One woman who was inside the store at Hyperion Avenue in Silver Lake died from a gunshot wound, police said.

That account was backed up by Christian Dunlop, an estate agent who lives nearby, who said he saw an employee drag an injured woman out by her hands.

Dozens of police and SWAT team members surrounded the building and planned to get any customers out of the store.

After about 30 minutes, police came inside and rushed some of the customers out. Atkins allowed some to leave, and other people sneaked out.

Twenty-eight-year-old Gene Evin Atkins is being held on $2 million bail in connection with the fatal Trader Joe's hostage standoff in Los Angeles Saturday.

The Los Angeles County coroner's office identified the woman Sunday as 27-year-old Melyda Corado. He allegedly shot and killed a store employee during the chaos before eventually giving himself up.

"Just as I turned, I heard all these gunshots and I turned around and this vehicle crashed right in back of me", Kohles said. According to police, employees and dozens of customers were inside the store Saturday afternoon when an armed man crashed his auto on Hyperion Avenue and exchanged gunfire with officers.

Los Angeles police said there was a pursuit with a suspect who emerged from a vehicle at the store.

The gunfire shattered the glass doors and the gunman ran inside and "down the middle aisle", Kohles said.

US President Donald Trump said he was watching the situation closely. "There was a lot of shots fired".

Witness Devin Field said it appeared traffic prevented the suspect from escaping police when he crashed in front of the store.

"I was walking in when a auto. running from the police crashed into street lamp in front of the entrance".

'Gunman walked in shooting. He went into the back and took hostages. Some employees climbed out a back window on a chain ladder. Employee says blood was all over the floor, unclear from where'.

A makeshift memorial of flowers, candles and notes grows on the sidewalk outside the Los Feliz Trader Joe's store in Los Angeles on Sunday.
