Suspects Accused of Shooting At Police In Highland Park

By City News Service

Two suspects accused of shooting at Los Angeles police officers in Highland Park were in custody Friday, a department official said.

The suspects — one in his late teens, the other in his early 20s – were arrested about 1 a.m. Oct. 25, Los Angeles police Lt. Richard Parks said.

The weapon said to be used in the alleged shooting, a 9 mm semi-automatic handgun, was recovered, Parks said.

A SWAT team was dispatched to the 2200 block of North Avenue 57 in Highland Park after the “shots fired” call was received from officers about 7.30 p.m. Oct. 24.

Parks said four or five shots were fired.

The shooting suspects were found in an apartment building on the 2200 block, which was evacuated in the course of the search.

A perimeter around the apartment building remained partially in place early today, with some residents unable to return to their units as officers continued to search for evidence.
