Map shows where Sunset Boulevard was shut down Monday.

Police shut down busy Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood on Monday afternoon while officers investigated reports of a man firing a shotgun at construction workers from an apartment complex.

Sunset was closed shortly after 3 p.m. near North Cherokee Avenue, and some other streets were also shut down while officers swarmed the area, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

"We are still trying to locate the suspect," Officer Karen Rayner told The Times.

Police received calls that the man was in an apartment complex, perhaps on a balcony, firing the weapon at nearby workers. No injuries were immediately reported.
