Wife texted me that there were more police and emergency vehicles than she'd ever seen, thrashed car, one perp (female) handcuffed next to large black bag, apparently driver dead and police officer in critical condition.

Anyone closer to this?

She was at a store near the I-680 interchange there. She said one of the officers actually told one of the employees there to go after the running woman in the heat of the moment. I guess they bagged her shortly thereafter. She also commented that the officers surrounding the restrained suspect had the look of being seriously pissed off, like barely restrained...

Six-city chase ends with driver arrested in Alamo

by Action 4 News Staff

Authorities have confirmed a man is in custody following a chase that spanned six different cities in Hidalgo County.

It all started when a driver refused to stop for law enforcement officials in Palmview.

The driver then led authorities on a chase through Mission, McAllen, Pharr, San Juan and Alamo.

Investigators told Action 4 News that the chase ended in Alamo with the driver being arrested.

Neither the name of the driver nor a motive were immediately available.

Action 4 News will provide more information as it becomes available.

Looks more like a mixup of states...All of these locations appear to be in Hidalgo County, Texas, in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, or, as the natives often refer to it, "the Valley."

But the orig post said I-680...
Wiki for I-680:
>>Interstate 680 (I-680) is a north–south Interstate Highway in Northern California. It curves around the eastern cities of the San Francisco Bay Area from San Jose to Interstate 80 at Fairfield, bypassing cities along the eastern shore of San Francisco Bay such as Oakland and Richmond

Typing Alamo CA into google maps shows Alamo is just S of Walnut Creek and just N of Danville and I-680 goes right through it

I live just off I-680 in Danville. Here is the local news story:

http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2013/03/21/details-emerge-about-man-who-shot-chp-officer-on-i-680-near-alamo/

This did NOT happen in Texas, Alamo is in Contra Costa County, California. About 25 miles east of San Francisco.

Although this thread is titled:
>>Anyone hear of a big chase and/or shootout in Alamo, CA today?

“Today”, but the article says “last September”. The story is slugged “March 13, 2013”

>>An investigation into the shooting death of a California Highway Patrol officer on Interstate Highway 680 near Alamo last September found that the shooter was mentally troubled and pro-guns.

And here's another article I found which once again described it as taking place in Sept. of 2012. My only explanation at this point is that we have gone into a time warp and it is now Sept of 2012. So, do you think Romney has a chance of beating Obama in November? Also, I'm going to boldly predict that the Giants will beat the Tigers in the World Series next month...

from Sept of 2012

Note the info at the top of this thread:

That's more like it. Under topix.net there's a quote of this thread and someone responded: > John/Lafayette CA/ 5 hours ago:
>>I witnessed the same thing. 20+ police vehicles, sheriff to CHP, and unmarked law enforcement. I cannot find information. It looked like a war zone.

I did not catch that. This appears to be old news. There isn’t anything in the local press today. I am left wondering why these idiots post this stuff. The killing mentioned in the article did happen back then. Sorry I missed the date. There is still a roadside memorial on the freeway fence marking the spot.
