Long Beach, CA -

(CNS) A man suspected of stealing a car during a burglary at a Redondo Beach home was killed by Long Beach police this morning after firing at officers at the end of a vehicle chase, authorities said.

California Highway Patrol officers chased the suspect from Redondo Beach into Long Beach shortly before 1 a.m. but lost sight of him as he exited the southbound San Diego (405) Freeway at Studebaker Road, Long Beach police Officer Marlene Arrona said.

Minutes later, Long Beach police spotted the vehicle and gave chase, she said. The suspect crashed into a garage in the 6400 block of Keynote Street near Hackett Avenue and was killed in an officer-involved shooting after he brandished a gun and fired on officers, Arrona said.

The suspect, who Long Beach police Sgt. Dave Marander described as a young man, was pronounced dead at the scene. No officers were injured, Marander said.

The suspect was driving a white BMW, according to a news photographer. The vehicle was stolen during a burglary, Arrona said.
