A suspected hit man led Los Angeles law enforcement officers on a wild chase Friday that ended in a standoff between multiple police vehicles and the suspect’s Toyota Prius.

CNN’s Maeve Reston described the chase in a series of tweets.

The female driver of the Prius surrendered to police while the suspect remained in the vehicle. Law enforcement sent in a dog to distract the suspect and allow the SWAT team time to move on the vehicle. (RELATED: Study Reveals Best And Worst States To Be A Police Officer)
