High-speed freeway chase ends in officer-involved shooting
The shooting took place shortly before 7:30 p.m. near Workman Mill Road and Crossroads Parkway after California Highway Patrol officers confronted three suspects who had led officers on the chase, authorities said.
The vehicles reached speeds of 100 mph as the suspects fled westbound on the 60 Freeway, the CHP said.
"They appeared to be flashing gang signs at our officers," CHP Officer Christian Cracraft said.
He said the driver was initially stopped by Banning police on suspicion of driving under the influence.
Two of the suspects were taken to hospitals, Cracraft said. It was unclear whether both had been wounded by gunfire. The shooting is under investigation.
