Alhambra police have arrested a suspect who allegedly robbed a convenience store, engaged in an officer-involved shooting and evaded authorities for hours until being apprehended Sunday at San Marino High School.

Officers were notified Saturday about 11:20 p.m. of a robbery alarm at a 7-Eleven in the 1000 block of North Garfield Avenue, Alhambra Police Sgt. J. Johnson said in a statement.

Moments later, a witness called police and said he had seen the robbery and was following the suspect who was driving east on Huntington Drive.

Officers located the suspect in nearby San Marino. After the suspect made “furtive” movements toward his waistband, an officer-involved shooting took place, the statement said.

The suspect fled on foot and was found about 6:35 a.m. on the campus of San Marino High at 2701 Huntington Drive, about three miles from the convenience store, the statement said.

It was not clear if anyone had been injured. The suspect’s name and age were not given.
