LAPD seeks gunman who fired at officers in South L.A.
Police searched Tuesday for a gunman who shot at officers from a vehicle in South Los Angeles.
No officers were hurt in the incident reported shortly before 10 a.m. in the 500 block of West 53rd Street, said Los Angeles police spokesman Bruce Borihahn.
A man in a burgundy-colored car drove up to where a task force of LAPD narcotics detectives and an FBI agent were meeting, got out of his car and opened fire, police said.
The man ran from the scene. It was not immediately clear if the man was struck by return gunfire, and did police say how many shots were fired.
Nearby 52nd Street Elementary School was placed on a lockdown as police swarmed the area and searched for the suspect, police said.
