STOCKTON (KCBS) – A man wanted in connection with an attempted homicide in San Jose was shot and killed on Interstate Highway 5 in Stockton after a police pursuit early Thursday morning, a Stockton police spokesman said.
At about 1 a.m. Thursday, the California Highway Patrol ran a check on the license plate of a car driven by the 43-year-old man and learned that it was connected to the San Jose attempted murder, Stockton police Officer Joseph Silva said.
A “be on the lookout” alert had been issued for the car, Silva said.
The CHP attempted to pull over the car in the North Stockton area and a chase ensued when the driver refused to stop, Silva said.
CHP officers notified Stockton police, who responded and the chase continued with the driver heading off I-5 and moving onto city streets in the northern part of the city before returning to the highway.
