Highland Park shooting suspects holed up for hours
HIGHLAND PARK, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Two suspects were holed up for hours at a Highland Park apartment complex after police say they fired shots at officers.
The incident began around 7:30 p.m. Thursday. Police say two patrol units in the area confronted two known gang members, who opened fire on the officers. No officers were hit, and police say they never fired their weapons.
Police chased the suspects into an apartment complex near Avenue 57 and Monte Vista Street, leading to a barricade situation. Police blocked off the area, evacuated some residents and brought in the SWAT Team.
The two suspects finally surrendered around 1 a.m. Residents were back in their homes by 6 a.m. Police were believed to be executing a search warrant for more evidence.
