An 58-year-old man was arrested after police say he killed a woman in an Upland alley then led authorities on a pursuit from the Inland Empire to the Gorman area late Tuesday night
Thomas Hill, of Upland, was arrested on suspicion of murder after California Highway Patrol officers managed to get Hill to pull over near Gorman along the 5 Freeway about 50 miles north of Los Angeles, according to an Upland police statement.
Just before 8 p.m., officers received several 911 calls reporting a woman had been shot and was lying in an alley in the 700 block of North Ukiah Way near Upland High School, officials said.
Paramedics took the unidentified woman to San Antonio Regional Hospital, where she later died, the police statement said.
Police identified the shooter as Hill, police said, and began to look for him.
Around 11:40 p.m., Hill was spotted driving near the crime scene and when officers tried to pull him over, he sped off, officials said.
Hill drove onto the freeway and the pursuit was turned over to CHP, police said. They were able to stop him near Gorman after using a PIT maneuver on his vehicle, according to reports.
The relationship between Hill and the woman or the motive in the shooting has not been made clear.
Hill was booked at West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.
