UPDATE: Bystanders stepped into the line of fire at the end of a high-speed pursuit Wednesday as police tried to apprehend alleged robbers who were tossing money out of their getaway vehicle.
The pursuit began around 10 a.m. in the Santa Clarita area following a Bank of America robbery. It ended about 80 minutes later in South LA near the intersection of Vernon and Kansas avenues.
A mob of people gathered around the black Volvo SUV after it was forced to stop because of traffic.
Officers exited their squad cars to confront the alleged robbers and were able to take them into custody among the sea of onlookers.
