An unidentified kidnapping suspect exchanged gunfire with Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies today after a wild chase.

The incident was covered by multiple TV stations, but only Fox 11 broadcast the shootout close up (video below).

According to KABC, the suspect drove a white SUV on the wrong side of the street and almost hit a skateboarder during the chase with law enforcement.

Eventually, he stopped the vehicle, appeared to taunt deputies and fired his handgun, reported CBS Los Angeles.

However, law enforcement returned fire and hit him. The suspect wandered over to a residence where he sat outside for about an hour even though he was bleeding.

Deputies evacuated residents while the wounded suspect lay down and drank water from the home's garden hose.

He finally surrendered right before 7 p.m.
