Shooting Prompts Standoff On Wilshire Boulevard

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — An hour-long standoff ended Monday following a shooting Monday near a BMW dealership in the mid-Wilshire area.

A man was shot in the upper body near Mansfield Avenue and Wilshire Boulevard at 1:45 p.m., Los Angeles Police Department Officer Gregory Baek said.

The unidentified man was taken to a hospital, but it did not appear that his condition was life threatening.

The shooting led to an hour-long standoff, which ended when a sharpshooter team swarmed the suspect.

The standoff temporarily forced the closure of Wilshire Boulevard from La Brea to Highland. John Burroughs Middle School on Wilshire was locked down, since shortly before 2:30 p.m.
