Investigators are trying to unravel the mysterious circumstances that lead to the shooting death of a man who, after being released from jail, leaped out of a moving ambulance and later stabbed an officer with a butcher knife.
The bizarre chain of events started about 3:00 p.m. Saturday after the suspect posted bail at the Twin Towers jail. An ambulance was taking the 35-year-old Hispanic male to have a minor injury looked at County-USC Medical Center.
For reasons that were not yet clear, the man jumped out of the moving ambulance near Mission and Richmond streets. Medics stopped to help but the man assaulted them and fled on foot.
