A young man was wounded this afternoon in an officer-involved shooting in Montecito Heights and a handgun was recovered at the scene.

No officers were injured in the shooting that occurred about 3:45 p.m. in the 4400 block of Turquoise Street, according LAPD Officer Mike Lopez.

The suspect was taken to a hospital, but his condition was not immediately available, Lopez said.

Police told reporters at the scene that the man is 18 years old.
