Developing story- Armed, high speed, South Sacramento pursuit ends Downtown

A high speed chase involving Sacramento Sheriffs Deputies and a man wanted for robbery ended when the suspect spun out of control and crashed on J Street in downtown Sacramento Thursday afternoon

The chase began when deputies with the Sacramento Sheriff’s Office attempted to pull over Andre Rushing, 23, on Mills Tower Drive in Rancho Cordova, according to Sergeant Jason Ramos, the spokesman for the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department.

The (appropriately named) Rushing sped off, and took officers on a chase that went through the South Sacramento area to Interstate 5, Ramos said.

Rushing, who had a 38-year-old female passenger in the car, reached speeds of 90 miles per hour and higher, and collided with multiple cars during the chase, including law enforcement vehicles, according to Ramos.

The chase ended when Rushing took the J Street exit at a high speed and spun out of control, crashing at the bottom of the ramp. Officers from Sacramento Sheriff’s Department, Sacramento Police Department and California Highway Patrol pulled guns on the suspects and took them into custody.

Officers pulled a blanket with a shotgun, shotgun shells, a gun clip and bags from the trunk of the vehicle after the arrests.
