A suspect linked to a fatal shooting in Los Angeles earlier this year was taken into custody Friday after he allegedly stole a man and fled authorities while the victim was still entangled in his seat belt, police said. and witnesses.

The victim died after the suspect, Joshua Reneau, 31, dragged him more than 2 miles during the police chase, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a press release.

Reneau was captured after crashing into several police vehicles, overturning his car and barricading himself inside, the department said.

He was hospitalized and is expected to be arrested on suspicion of murder, according to the release.

The body of the carjacking victim, which was not identified, was found about three houses south of the crash site in Inglewood, the department said. He was pronounced dead on the spot.

The man was trapped in his seat belt when Reneau tried to force him out of his vehicle, the department said.

Tina Atkins told NBC Los Angeles that she was picking up her kids from an after-school program when she saw a “car heading straight for us with a corpse hanging from the bottom”.

“I jumped the curb with my kids in the car because I didn’t want them to hit me,” she told the station.

The chase began after authorities attempted to arrest Reneau in connection with a July robbery and deadly shooting in the San Fernando Valley, the department said.

Two other suspects linked to the July crimes were taken into custody on Thursday, and when officers tried to stop a car Reneau was in on Friday, the vehicle was said to have fled, the department said.

The car crashed and Reneau allegedly carjacked an SUV, NBC Los Angeles reported. After fatally dragging and crashing the driver, he refused to surrender, the department said. He was taken into custody after authorities sent a SWAT unit to the scene, the department said.

Reneau is expected to appear in court on Monday, the department said. It was not immediately clear whether he has a lawyer who speaks on his behalf.
