Authorities have pulled a motionless man from a car after an hour-long standoff following a chase and rolling shootout near Los Angeles.

There’s no word on his condition. An ambulance took the man to a hospital.

The chase began about 3 p.m. in Downey. The Toyota Prius led police on a wild chase by freeway and surface street during which a passenger leaned halfway out of a window and blasted away at pursuers with a handgun.

The gun was similar to one used to kill a liquor store clerk in Downey on Tuesday.

The car finally was blocked by traffic on a street in nearby Vernon, where police riddled it with bullets.

A bloodied woman driver then got out and surrendered. More than an hour later, sheriff’s SWAT team deputies dragged the man from the car after first using a robot, flash-bang grenades and a dog.

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.
