Associated Press DOWNEY, Calif. — A man suspected of killing a liquor store owner near Los Angeles is hospitalized with at least one gunshot wound suffered during a shootout with police at the end of a chase. The county sheriff's department says the man is in critical condition Saturday. He is believed to be the gunman who walked into a Downey liquor store on Tuesday and shot down its owner. The high-speed chase began Friday afternoon when a black Prius he was riding in refused to pull over. During the pursuit, the suspect fired a large-caliber revolver at police. It ended when traffic trapped the Prius and police who pulled up in the next lane riddled the car with gunfire. Authorities said a woman driving the Prius was shot, but her injury was not life-threatening.
