  • An unidentified woman sits next to witnesses on a sidewalk after a gunman barricaded himself inside a Trader Joes in Los Angeles

During the three-hour siege, people were seen fleeing the Trader Joe's supermarket, some jumping from windows.

Gene Evin Atkins, 28, has been booked for murder.

Atkins was being held on $2 million bail Sunday and it wasn't clear if he had an attorney to comment on the allegations. Authorities had initially described the suspected gunman as a male in his late teens.

The gunman has barricaded himself inside. Authorities have not yet said who fired the shots that killed Corado. "Our hearts are broken over what happened today", Trader Joe's said in a statement.

One woman at the supermarket was shot and killed during Saturday's standoff.

"I regret to inform you that there is one fatality that occurred inside, of a woman", Garcetti said, without further identifying the woman.

At several points the suspect began counting down in an aggressive manner, Westafer said. "She was pronounced dead at scene", police said on Twitter. I appreciate the retweets and the love. A GoFundMe page has been created to help pay for Corado's funeral expenses. "My baby sister. My world". Employees snuck out through back emergency exits.

Police said they used the car's LoJack system to track the vehicle, and then got into a gunfight with the man when they tried to pull the auto over.

Mr Atkins allegedly shot his grandmother and fled, later barricading himself in the supermarket. Our thoughts are with her family, and our Crew Members and customers who experienced this terrifying and unimaginable ordeal. Our focus is on doing whatever we can to support them at this time. President Donald Trump confirmed LAPD is working with federal law enforcement.

The suspected remained in the store as of 5:52 p.m. local time.

The gunman was apprehended, and his grandmother was in critical condition at a hospital, the Times reported.

The chase ended when the suspect crashed the vehicle and ran into the busy store on Hyperion Avenue, Lopez said.

The suspect was being pursued after reportedly shooting his grandmother and girlfriend in south Los Angeles. Don Kohles, 91, was just walking into the store when it all began. "He ran right behind me". Another cousin who lives in the house came running from the porch and shouted to Egland, "I think Gene shot my mama!" Kohles says he and others inside took cover and laid on the floor as the suspect ran inside. Then, he led police on a chase until he crashed into a light post near the Trader Joe's. The standoff made for a chaotic scene in the Silver Lake area.

The driver got out, and police started firing at him as he ran towards the supermarket. And the helper was Sean Garace.

Once he got the attention of officers outside the building, he and several co-workers were able to climb down the ladder to safety.

Heavily armed officers in riot gear stood along the side of the store and used mirrors to look inside as hostage negotiators tried to coax the man into freeing his 40-50 hostages and surrendering. The man was surrounded by police officers, and pinned against a wall.
