LA police say reckless driver shot dead after pursuit told 911 he had a gun and would shoot
By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) ' Los Angeles police say a motorist shot to death after a wild auto chase had called 911 during the pursuit, claimed he had a gun and threatened to shoot officers.

A police statement Thursday says that the man did not actually have a gun during the Wednesday night pursuit.

According to the statement, the man had a lengthy conversation with the 911 operator, stated he had a gun, had been arrested previously and would pull his gun if police pulled out their weapons.

The pursuit ended on the U.S. 101 freeway when 19-year-old Abdul Arian attempted a U-turn and was rammed by a police car.

TV news helicopters showed Arian jump out of the car and repeatedly make movements with his arms as if taking a shooting stance. He was shot as he ran near a car that had pulled over.
