Four killed in Compton car crash after police pursuit

Four killed in Compton car crash after police pursuit

Four people were killed Saturday when a high-speed pursuit by Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies ended with the pursued car slamming into another vehicle.

The accident happened about 12:30 a.m. at the intersection of West Greenleaf Boulevard and South Wilmington Avenue in Compton, said Sheriff’s Sgt. Peter Ramirez. The pursuit started after the car was pulled over. Deputies believed the vehicle matched a description of a vehicle used in a shooting that had just occurred. The car sped off once the deputies exited their cruiser.

The deputies pursued the vehicle for about two miles when the car ran a red light and crashed into another vehicle. The suspect’s vehicle slammed into a light pole, a brick wall, and a garage and flipped over before catching fire.

The other vehicle involved in the crash, a Chevrolet Monte Carlo, veered out of control and hit another wall. Only one person was in that vehicle.

Only one victim was identified by late Saturday, but it wasn’t clear which vehicle Stacey Garcia, 30, of Los Angeles, was in.

Several family members at the scene told The Los Angeles Times that two of the people in the pursued car were Larry Gilmore, 35, and Shawnice Osborne, 20.

“It’s terrible to see two cars so mangled up,” said Keith Wright in an interview with The Times, who said he was Gilmore’s brother.

The events unfolded after a report of “multiple shots fired” came from the 100 block of West Indigo Street in Compton, Ramirez said.

The shooting, pursuit, and accident are all under investigation.
