While conducting a search of the scene, the officers heard a California Highway Patrol report of a nearby shooting on the 2 Freeway at the 134 Freeway, where a man was taken into custody.

The apparent carjacking victim, Jack Ananyan, said the man had approached him and offered him money and jewelry in exchange for a ride.

Ananyan said that when he refused, the man pulled out a gun and opened fire.

“I was shot [at] once in the car,” Ananyan said told KTLA. “After I got out of the car and started running, he shot after me.”

Ananyan said the man then got into his car and drove off.
