Authorities are trying to sort out a bizarre incident on the 210 Freeway in La Crescenta in which a Glendale man allegedly shot a woman to death and pushed her body out of his car before shooting himself.

The incident occurred Friday afternoon.

“There is a possibility that a witness saw some type of scuffle inside the vehicle as they were approaching La Crescenta [Avenue],” said L.A. County Sheriff's Department Lt. Mike Rosson.
“There was a vehicle that tried to pin in the suspect vehicle. The suspect brandished a firearm. Obviously the good Samaritan backed off.”

The man who allegedly shot and then pushed the body out of the car was stopped a short time later by Glendale police on the southbound Glendale Freeway near the Mountain Avenue offramp. He sustained what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the upper torso, Rosson said. He was in surgery late Friday.
