LAPD incident
Two people have been detained for questioning in connection with shots that were fired at two Los Angeles officers, but police were still searching the area where the attack occurred, authorities said Thursday night.

The two plainclothes narcotics officers saw two men spray painting a building about 7:25 p.m. near Oakwood Avenue and North Heliotrope Drive in East Hollywood, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

One of the men fired several rounds at the officers, but no one was injured, LAPD Officer Karen Rayner said.

It was unclear what, if any, role the two people being questioned may have had in connection with the attack. No other details were immediately available.
