Undercover LAPD officers shot directly in front of police station

Los Angeles – On Tuesday, June 26, 2013, two undercover Los Angeles police detectives suffered minor injuries in what the LAPD is calling an “ambush shooting” early Tuesday morning after 4:00 a.m. They were in their car, returning to the Wilshire police station when an African-American, dressed in all black, confronted the vehicle and fired into it, shattering several windows, and grazing the two cops.

The suspect fled on foot into the Mid-City / Mid-Town area of Los Angeles, triggering a manhunt that shut down the neighborhood and several businesses for 12 hours. The original perimeter that the police set was mblankive, going from San Vicente (north) to Washington Avenue (south) from La Brea Avenue (west) to West Blvd (east).

The suspect fled the scene west on Venice and then south on Highland towards St. Elmo Drive where residents reported seeing the suspect. Shortly after those reports, he disappeared. By late Tuesday afternoon, the gunman remained at large, after police had detained 10 individuals for questioning throughout the day, but not the shooter.

The gunman apparently sneaked up behind the two detectives as they were entering a gate at the Wilshire Division station around 4:30 a.m.
