Four Suspects Arrested in Downtown LA Shooting

LOS ANGELES (CNS) – A gang-related shooting in downtown Los Angeles Monday left one person hospitalized and four suspects in custody following a police chase, authorities said.

The shooting occurred at about 2:45 a.m. near Olympic Boulevard and Broadway, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The wounded person, described only as a male, was taken to a hospital in stable condition, the LAPD reported.

“Officers were on patrol when they observed a shooting in progress,” police said in a statement. “Officers went in pursuit of the suspect vehicle.”

Four suspects were taken into custody, according to police, who said the crime was believed to be gang-related.

“I’m grateful our people are safe & those we believe responsible for the shooting in custody,” LAPD Chief Michel Moore said in a statement. “The number of guns in the hands of robbery suspects has a direct impact on the lethality we are seeing on our streets. We will be unrelenting in identifying the sources of these firearms.”
