A wanted man allegedly rammed a Fugitive Task Force vehicle before a Deputy U.S. Marshal shot him in the arm Wednesday afternoon in a Lemon Grove grocery store parking lot, the beginning of a brief chase that ended with the suspect’s apprehension.

Cedric Leroy Black, 22, was arrested and transported to a hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound, the U.S. Marshals Service said. The incident took place at about 1:30 p.m., beginning outside an Albertsons store at the Lemon Grove Plaza Shopping Center at 7090 Broadway.

The vehicle pursuit ended when Black crashed his vehicle near the on-ramp to westbound SR-94 at College Avenue in Oak Park.

Black was wanted on multiple local warrants, including robbery, burglary and a probation violation.

After ramming a task force vehicle, Black steered toward a Deputy U.S. Marshal, who fired multiple shots, the U.S. Marshals Service said.

One Marshal sustained a minor leg injury during the incident and will be medically evaluated, and there were no other injuries, Marshals said.

The Lemon Grove shopping center is closed during the investigation. A sheriffs crime scene van arrived at the scene shortly after 3 p.m..
