Suspect Who Fled Hospital Is Back In Custody

A shooting suspect who fled from a hospital last week after a collision with a police car is back in custody.

Police say the man and a female friend were fleeing police last Tuesday night after shooting at police officers, when they crashed their car into a patrol car at the intersection of Washington and Compton, injuring the officer inside.

The officer whose car was hit was on his way to help with the chase.

Both suspects were taken to a hospital and the man then walked out.
