Deputies searching for carjacking suspect in Lynwood
Deputies on Tuesday searched in Lynwood for a suspect involved in a carjacking.
A driver was carjacked at gunpoint near the border of Lynwood and Compton about 2:40 a.m., said Sgt. James Duran of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The victim was not injured, Duran said.
Two suspects fled in the vehicle and attempted to enter the 105 Freeway but instead fled on foot, Duran said. Deputies set up a containment zone and were able to find and arrest one of the suspects on suspicion of carjacking.
The investigation prompted the closure of the Long Beach Boulevard offramp of the westbound 105 Freeway, the California Highway Patrol said.
