Suspect, two officers injured after police pursuit ends in crash


OAKLAND – A suspect and two officers were injured in a police pursuit Wednesday in Oakland, police said.

The chase kicked off just after 5 p.m. when undercover officers witnessed an armed carjacking near 32nd and West streets, Oakland police Officer Rosalia Lopez said.

Lopez said officers briefly pursued the suspects, who were caravanning with other vehicles, before handing the chase off to Argus, the police department’s helicopter.

As officers headed to the scene, one of the vehicles collided with a marked patrol vehicle, Lopez said. Multiple people were then taken into custody.

Lopez said two officers and an individual linked to the carjacking were taken to a hospital. A fourth person, described by Lopez as a victim, was also hospitalized, but it was not immediately clear if they were injured in the carjacking or the crash. None of their injuries was considered life-threatening.

Officers recovered a firearm at the scene, Lopez said.
