VIDEO: CA Officers Take Down Carjacking Suspect with Less-Lethal Projectile

A 27-year-old carjacking suspect was in custody late Wednesday evening after police shot him with a less-lethal round at the end of a pursuit in Long Beach, authorities said.

The sequence of events began about 10 p.m. when officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a stolen vehicle, according to the Long Beach Police Department. A scuffle between the male driver and police ensued, during which the suspect allegedly took an officer's gun and fled. The officer was not seriously injured in the altercation, KABC TV reports.

According to investigators, the man then carjacked a vehicle, prompting a chase. A police standoff began after the suspect pulled over. He exited his car and was taken into custody after being shot with the less-lethal round.
