Undercover LAPD officers and gang members fought a car-to-car gun battle in Boyle Heights on Tuesday, but no one was hurt, police said.
Three of the four suspects involved in the shooting were in custody this morning, but the fourth was being sought, according to police.
The gunfight occurred in the area of Cesar Chavez Avenue and State Street around 6 p.m. Tuesday, said Officer A. Villaneda of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Hollenbeck Station.
Two undercover officers had noticed that the suspects were in possession of a firearm and began following them, he said, adding that the suspects opened fire, and the officers fired back. No one was hit.
Three of the four suspects were later taken into in custody, and police were searching for the fourth, Villaneda said. The identities of the suspects behind bars were not immediately released.
