LEON HARRIS, CNN ANCHOR: The Associated Press is reporting that a gunman is holding several hostages at the Playland Arcade on the Santa Monica Pier. This incident began less than three hours ago.
Police arrested a companion of a man arrested on a triple murder charge. Well, that companion then ran, turning and firing on the police and then wounding, in the process, three officers who chased him. A bystander was also wounded. None of these wounds are considered to be life-threatening.
A police negotiator is right now talking with the suspect.
