TARZANA (CBSLA) — Burglary suspects fired at police officers in a quiet Tarzana neighborhood after reportedly trying to break into the home of rapper Chief Keef.
Officers on patrol spotted two men jumping a fence from a backyard in the neighborhood at about 10 p.m. and confronted them. One of the suspects fired a shot, but none of the officers were hit or returned fire.
This prompted a major police response, including officers with K9s and rifles drawn.
The five-hour search wrapped up by about 4 a.m., with both men in custody. One of the men had a gun when he was arrested, according to police.
One of the suspects was taken away in an ambulance after being injured while being corned by K9 officers.
TMZ reports the suspects had broken into the home of rapper Chief Keef, who was apparently home at the time, but was unaware of the break-in. Bricks were reportedly thrown at the house and broke a window, and one suspect got into the house.
LAPD officers returned to the scene with specialized equipment, including metal detectors.
