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.
