Police Arrest Suspect Following Armed Car Theft, Homicide In Milpitas

MILPITAS (CBS SF) — Police are investigating a homicide that occurred Friday night inside the parking garage of a Milpitas apartment building as officers were seeking a person suspected of stealing a car at gunpoint.

At 10:45 p.m., officers responded to a report of a stolen vehicle at the Ilara Apartments at 2101 S. Main St., Lt. Raj Maharaj said.

A caller told police that a male suspect had pointed two guns at her and took her car keys, according to Maharaj.

As officers were responding, they heard a single gunshot coming from the apartment building’s parking structure.

As the suspect driver exited officers tried to stop the car, however the driver refused to pull over and a brief pursuit ensued, Maharaj said.

Inside the parking structure, officers discovered a male victim suffering from a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Maharaj.
