The witness, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said he was inside his house Tuesday afternoon when he heard someone outside yell, “Freeze!” He looked out his window, he said, and saw a young man running from an officer on a motorcycle.

He watched the 18-year-old duck into a small, dead-end driveway on Century Boulevard, then turn back toward the street as if to keep running. The officer, the witness said, was close behind, still on the motorcycle.
