Several Men Reportedly Open Fire On LAPD Officers

SOUTH LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A group of men armed with semi-automatic handguns shot at vice squad police officers in South Los Angeles Wednesday.

No injuries were reported.

Police were called to 41st Street, between Main Street and Broadway, at 6 p.m. Wednesday, LAPD Officer Karen Rayner said.

Rayner said did not know the circumstances of the shooting, but said sharpshooters were also called because the suspects might be holed up in a home nearby.
