LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — Two men were arrested in Chinatown Thursday morning after a 45-minute, high-speed chase that began in Long Beach.

Police responded to an attempted break-in just after 5 a.m. at a business in the 4600 block of Virginia Road.

A private security guard confronted the suspects, according to police, and they tried to run him down with their vehicle. The security guard fired at the suspects.

The CHP took over the pursuit, which came to an end in Chinatown around 5:50 a.m. without incident.

The suspects were taken into custody and will be charged with attempted burglary as well as assault with a deadly weapon, police said.
