CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) — One person was taken into custody after leading police on a slow-speed pursuit through the South Bay for nearly two hours.

Officers were called at about 12 p.m. after the suspect reportedly brandished a firearm at a victim. The suspect was associated with a vehicle, seen by Sky10 as a grey-colored van with a black stripe on the roof, and officers located the vehicle.

After trying to stop the vehicle, the driver fled and led officers on a slow-speed chase that last for about an hour and 45 minutes, according to CVPD.

The suspect led officers onto highways and through shopping centers and apartment complexes in Chula Vista, before being cornered by a big rig and SUV on Moss St. at 3rd Ave. Sky10 was above the scene as CVPD and undercover officers swarmed the vehicle with their firearms drawn.

The suspect was seen being pulled out of the vehicle and taken into custody. CVPD said the department had not immediately identified the suspect.
