From Olga Ospina:

An L.A. County Sheriff's detective was hit by a car this afternoon, and the man behind the wheel was shot dead by another deputy.

Just after 2:30 p.m. a woman called authorities to report her children had been kidnapped from a shopping center near the corner of Vermont and Imperial Highway. She had a fight with her boyfriend, he threatened her with a knife and then took off in her car with her 2 young children inside.

According to Lt. Corina with the Sheriff's homicide bureau, the suspect dumped the 2 kids down the street at a grocery store parking lot. An 8 year old and and a 7 month old baby were left to fend for themselves. 10 to 15 minutes later, the 24 year old who was on parole, returned to the shopping center, driving at a high rate of speed. He plowed into one of the patrol cars and struck the detective who was standing outside. Another deputy opened fire, killing the suspect.

The detective was rushed to the hospital, but has since been released. The children were unharmed and have been reunited with their mother. The suspect, who was shot and killed, had a lengthy criminal history.
