Officers responded to a robbery call near the Eagle Rock Plaza at 2626 Colorado Boulevard around 2:30 p.m., where an officer-involved shooting occurred, according to Glendale police.

Police told CBSLA’s Tom Wait a man tried to steal a woman’s cell phone when officers raced to scene and opened fire.

No one was struck by gunfire and the suspect was taken into custody after a brief standoff.
