LOS ANGELES — A man and a woman who led police in a pursuit and shootout which ended in Vernon with a standoff with police were charged today.
Dylan Andres Lindsey, 24, faces one count of murder and eight counts of assault with a firearm upon a peace officer.
Codefendant Alison Hart, 37, faces one count each of accessory after the fact – knowledge of crime – and fleeing a pursuing peace officer’s motor vehicle while driving recklessly.
Lindsey is charged with the shooting death of Gurpreet Singh, 45, at a Downey liquor store on May 7, prosecutors said.
Three days later Downey police officers attempted to pull over a vehicle driven by Hart with Lindsey as a passenger. Hart allegedly led police on a pursuit while Lindsay shot multiple times at Los Angeles County Sheriff deputies, Downey police officers and a Bell Gardens police officer. The pursuit ended with a standoff near Downey Road and Bandini Boulevard, prosecutors added.
