LEON HARRIS, CNN ANCHOR: We want to update you now on this hostage situation that we've been following on the Santa Monica, California Pier.
The Associated Press is reporting that a police hostage negotiator is right now talking with the gunman. Now, this man ran from police when they arrested his companion on a triple murder charge shortly before 5:00 a.m. Eastern. That man fired on police when they gave chase, wounding three of them and a civilian as well. And none of their wounds is considered to be life-threatening.
The AP also reports that police believe the man may be an accomplice in the three murders in San Bernardino County.
