Glendale undercover officers shoot suspect in North Hollywood

COLFAX At least one person was wounded in a shooting involving Glendale police officers in North Hollywood, authorities said Tuesday.

No officers were hurt in the incident, which was reported shortly after 4 p.m. in the 6300 block of Colfax Avenue, north of the Red Line station, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

The Glendale officers were tailing two suspects in a drug-related case when circumstances caused the officers to open fire, police said.

One of the suspects was shot. He was taken to a local hospital with a non-life-threatening injury, according to police. A second suspect was detained at the scene.

LAPD patrol cars swarmed the scene as officers set up a mobile command post.
