“We don’t know what precipitated the shooting,” LAPD Lt. Andy Neiman told the Los Angeles Times, but “everyone’s keenly aware of what happened in New York,” and there is a “sense of uneasiness.”

Sunday night around 9:20 p.m., two officers in a single patrol car were responding to a call and driving southbound on Hoover Street near 62nd Place. They saw a muzzle flash — the visible blast from a gun — and determined they were being fired at, Neiman said.

Neither officer was hurt, and they returned fire, officials said.

Police called a citywide tactical alert and launched a mblankive search. One person of interest was detained for questioning, but another man remained at large.

“It was an ambush,” Deputy Chief Bob Green said. “They were fired upon without any prior contact with the suspects.”
