LAPD locks down Venice neighborhood after reported gunfire

Crimes near gushot scene in Venice
Los Angeles police blocked off an area in Venice on Tuesday night after several shots were reportedly fired near a busy intersection.

The gunfire was reported at Lincoln Boulevard and Rose Avenue, near a popular Whole Foods Market and a gas station, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

An LAPD search dog unit was responding as officers looked for suspects.

The incident was near the site of a shooting in December that left one person critically wounded after a gunman opened fire and fled near Rose Avenue.

No additional details were immediately available. For information on recent crimes reported in Venice, see The Times' Mapping L.A. database.
