A man turned himself in Saturday night after fleeing early that morning after an officer-involved shooting in Richmond left another suspect dead following a carjacking and police pursuit from Pinole, Richmond police Sgt. Bisa French said today. The man who turned himself in was allegedly one of three men who carjacked a victim in the 1400 block of Tara Hills Drive in Pinole at about 1 a.m. Saturday, according to French. Soon afterward, Pinole police officers spotted the stolen vehicle and attempted to stop it, but the driver failed to yield and a pursuit ensued, French said. The suspect vehicle traveled into Richmond on Richmond Parkway before turning onto Atlas Road where the driver lost control of the vehicle and crashed, according to French. After the crash, there was an exchange of gunfire between Pinole police officers and at least one of the three suspects, and one of the suspects was killed, French said. A second suspect was taken into custody by police, while the third had fled from the area on foot, she said. However, the man turned himself in at a Pinole police station Saturday night, according to French. No police officers were injured, and the officer who shot the suspect has been placed on paid administrative leave, as is standard procedure, French said.
