Los Angeles shooting leaves 3 police officers injured, suspect at large in Lincoln Heights
Authorities have surrounded a building in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Lincoln Heights, where they believe a suspect who was involved in a shootout with police is barricaded.
At least three police officers were injured in the shooting earlier Wednesday evening, according to multiple reports.
Los Angeles Metropolitan police responded to an initial call around 4:30 p.m. near the intersection of N. Mission Road and N. Broadway, according to FOX 11 Los Angeles.
Shots were reported about two hours later and more than two dozen emergency and SWAT vehicles responded.
The suspect, who is wanted for a felony, is believed to have disappeared down an alleyway adjacent to an apartment complex before barricading inside the structure, according to KCAL News.
