California fugitive and teenage daughter, 15, killed by police in shootout

A California fugitive and his kidnapped 15-year-old daughter were both killed by police in a shootout, according to officials.

Anthony John Graziano, who allegedly killed his estranged wife, was involved in a pursuit with law enforcement that ended on the 15 Freeway near Victorville on Tuesday morning.

Officials say that when the pursuit came to an end, Graziano began shooting at deputies from the rear window of his truck, and was shot and died at the scene, according to Fox11.

His daughter, Savanna Graziano, was taken to a nearby hospital where she later died of her injuries.

San Bernardino County Sheriff Shannon Dicus told a press conference that the teenager exited the vehicle wearing tactical gear and ran toward deputies as the shooting took place.

The Fontana Police Department says that Anthony Graziano was wanted for allegedly shooting and killing his wife, 45-year-old Tracy Matinez, at a home in the city outside of Los Angeles on Monday morning.

The abduction resulted in an Amber Alert being issued across Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside and Kern counties.

The couple was separated and in the process of getting a divorce, police sources told KTLA.

After the pursuit came to an end California Highway Patrol ended the Amber Alert.
