LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A man who allegedly shot someone Friday afternoon in South Los Angeles barricaded himself inside a nearby building, police said.

The shooting occurred around 12:30 p.m. at 74th Street and Broadway, said Richard French of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Police tried to detain the suspect, but he fled into a building, French said.

“The SWAT team was called in around 1:50 p.m. to deal with the barricade situation,” French said.

He said it was unknown whether the suspect was inside a home or a business. The condition of the shooting victim was unavailable.
