Tourist fatally mowed down in armed robbery at California fashion mall, sparking wild police chase

Three men attempting a gunpoint robbery outside a California fashion store killed a New Zealand visitor Tuesday. A spectacular police pursuit caught three thieves.  

Newport Beach Police said two guys tried to rob Patricia McKay, 68, and her husband outside Fashion Island Mall near Barnes & Noble at 3:30 p.m.   

Struggling with firearm, suspect pulled victim into parking lot. Six rounds fired but no one was harmed, police said.  White Toyota Camry of third suspect hit woman. McKay's hubby OK.   

At ABC7, NBPD Sgt. Steve Oberon stated one suspect ran as the vehicle fled and hit the woman. "The male suspect that ran got back into the vehicle at which point some rounds were fired from a handgun and the vehicle fled the scene."  

Three Camry suspects fled north to Los Angeles, causing a police chase. Fox 11 Los Angeles aerial footage shows a suspect rushing toward South Gate after leaving the automobile.   

After emerging shirtless, the man marches backward toward police with his hands in the air as they draw weapons. Police cuff and transport him to a truck after kneeling with his hands on his head.   

The Camry was abandoned in Los Angeles County by two more suspects detained. At the "stunning, staggering" act, Newport Beach Mayor Will O'Neill labeled the accused "creeps".  

NBPD identified Lancaster's Jaden Cunningham, 18, Los Angeles' Malachi Eddward Darnell, 18, and Compton's Leroyernest Joseph McCrary, 26 as the suspects. Each faced homicide, firearm robbery, and conspiracy charges.  

"I was driving into the atrium entrance and suddenly I found someone on the ground and someone was giving CPR," Hamad says. "This never happens here, like I rarely see a cop car here, only security guards."
