MALIBU, Calif. (AP) - A man who authorities say fired at an off-duty FBI agent led police on a high-speed chase that ended with him surrounded and lying on a hillside overlooking the ocean in Malibu for some 90 minutes.
KCAL-TV showed the man moving only occasionally as he lay in the spotlight from a helicopter Wednesday night before he was taken into custody peacefully.
Los Angeles police Officer Bruce Borihanh says the incident began a few hours earlier in a fitness center parking lot when the man shot at an off-duty law enforcement officer, who wasn't hurt.
FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller tells the Los Angeles Times the man was an FBI agent.
The suspect then led police and California Highway Patrol officers on a weaving, high-speed chase on U.S. 101 into Malibu.
He then got out of the car and ran down the brush-covered hillside where the standoff began.
