Stockton, Calif. - The Stockton Police Department is investigating the death of two armed robbery suspects following a vehicle pursuit that ended with the suspect's vehicle rolling over.
Investigators have said they believe the incident started around 10:45 a.m. today when the Stockton Police Department received a report of a person brandishing a firearm from a vehicle in the area of Hammer Lane and Holman Road. A short time later, Stockton Police heard from the Lodi Police Department that they were investigating an attempted armed robbery of a person at the Costco parking lot in Lodi.
The suspect vehicle description from the Lodi investigation matched the suspect vehicle description in Stockton. Officers located the vehicle on Hammer Lane and when they attempted to pull the vehicle over, the driver led officers on a short pursuit.
When the suspect vehicle entered the intersection of Hammer Lane and Alexandria Drive, the suspect vehicle collided with a bicyclist and three other vehicles. At some point, the suspect vehicle rolled over.
Two occupants inside the suspect vehicle were pronounced deceased at the scene and another suspect was taken into custody and transported to an area hospital for treatment. The bicyclist and the other occupants inside the three cars where treated at the scene and transported to area hospitals for what appears to be non-life threatening injuries.
Names of the deceased will be released by the San Joaquin County Coroners Office pending notification of family.
