A carjacking suspect who police say shot two people and stabbed another before shooting himself in the head at the end of a wild pursuit Friday has died, Los Angeles police said.

Daniel Ramirez died shortly before 6 p.m. Saturday, Officer Mike Lopez said.

Ramirez was identified Saturday as an accomplice to Artyom Gasparyan, a 32-year-old man who police believe is responsible for a monthlong series of violent crimes — including robbery, carjacking, attempted murder and a fatal shooting — stretching across Los Angeles County.

Artyom Gasparyan is seen in a photo released by the Los Angeles Police Department.
