A massive manhunt was under way in a south Los Angeles neighborhood after two gunmen fired on a police patrol car with a rifle on Sunday night.
At around 9.30pm local time, two suspects shot at a Los Angeles Police Department squad car as the officers patrolled an area of south Los Angeles, deputy chief Bob Green said, according to the Los Angeles Times. The officers fired back, but the suspects fled.
The officers were not injured.
The LAPD declared a citywide tactical alert, sending every available officer to the area to assist with the search. At least 60 officers were sent to the crime scene, which spanned three blocks.
