A manhunt is underway for two suspects after two police officers were shot and wounded in Los Angeles.
Det. Meghan Aguilar said the officers were driving on Broadway around 5:45 p.m. on Sunday when they were shot at, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Aguilar said the officers, who were wearing plainclothes, returned fire and several suspects scattered, according to the paper.
A number of people were detained in connection with the shooting and officers are searching for two suspects, she said.
The Times reported that the officers suffered minor wounds and were treated at the scene. It is unclear whether their vehicle was marked or undercover
“At this time, the officers believe they were the target of the gunfire,” said Aguilar, cautioning that the investigation is in the preliminary stage. “There’s going to be several thorough interviews of the officers. But right now they believe they were the target.”
The officers returned fire, Aguilar said. Several suspects scattered, but police detained a number of people in connection with the shooting. Police are still looking for two suspects, she said.
Authorities said the officers suffered minor wounds and were treated at the scene.
It is unclear whether the vehicle the officers were driving in was marked or undercover, she said.
Police cordoned off several blocks around the intersection, which is near where police last summer shot and killed Ezell Ford Jr., a mentally ill man, sparking protests.
The LAPD’s SWAT unit was on the scene Sunday evening. Dozens of officers — as well as some police dogs — moved block by block in an attempt to hunt down the people involved in the shooting.
