LYNWOOD, Calif. (KTLA) — One carjacking suspect is dead and another is in custody after deputies caught up with them in Lynwood Tuesday.

Authorities say the two suspects held a driver at gunpoint and stole a vehicle at the border of Lynwood and Compton about 2:40 a.m.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputies were able to arrest one of the suspects after a short pursuit.

The second suspect fled the scene forcing officials to close the westbound 105 Freeway at Long Beach Boulevard while they conducted a search.

The search ended around 10 a.m. when officials announced the second gunman had died of an apparent suicide.

      Mark, Mark, you're not doing your race any good with all your rants. What you're doing is backfiring and making us look foolish. Times have changed for the worse I agree, but your racial rants make us look as guilty as the rest of the racist folk of other race. You're making it worse..
