Inglewood, California: Two male suspects were taken into custody in Lake View Terrace Tuesday morning, authorities have reported, subsequently hours within the search as the suspects were walking surrounding neighborhoods in what the pair describe a “peaceful protest” whilst carrying rifles.
“Let it be known that this is a peaceful protest and I’m within my constitutional rights. So if they violate that, that just goes to show how phony they are,” Tay S. said, wearing military fatigues and a helmet. “That’s why they want to take the guns away — because once they do that, they can come in, rape your wife, rape your kids, because they got guns but you don’t.”
The two men were initially located by the Inglewood police before 11 p.m., after a search was conducted in the area of 104th Street and Crenshaw Boulevard. Authorities monitored the two men, one of whom identified himself as “Tay S.,” both by helicopter and on ground, reportedly.
The LAPD began following the pair after they went from Inglewood and headed northbound on the 405 freeway into San Fernando Valley. The suspects, early Tuesday morning, went to an apartment building near Stagg Street and Ventura Canyon Avenue in Panorama City.
They later left the building in a vehicle and were followed by authorities to Lake View Terrace. When the vehicle actually came to a stop at Foothill Boulevard and Terra Bella Street, the suspects were taken into custody by police without incident.
