Huntington Park Gunfire Leads to Arrest; Assault Rifle Find

By City News Service

(CNS) – Police recovered an assault rifle and arrested one suspect following an early morning disturbance that was followed by gunfire Monday at a Huntington Park tavern.

Officers were called to the Kitty Kat Bar in the 5700 block of Santa Fe Avenue about 1:30 a.m. to investigate an assault and battery complaint, according to Lt. Neal Mongan of the Huntington Park Police Department.

When they arrived, they heard gunfire and saw a vehicle fleeing the scene. A pursuit ended with the car crashing into a commercial structure in the 2200 block of South Alameda Street in Los Angeles, Mongan said.

Two suspects ran off. A 30-year-old man whose name was not immediately released was found nearby, but the other suspect escaped. An assault rifle and other evidence was recovered at the collision scene, the lieutenant said.

No injuries were reported.
