LAPD Lockdown 25 Blocks, Break Out Nazi Stormtrooper Gear After Gunman Allegedly Shoots At Detectives (InformationLiberation)
Wednesday June 26th, 2013
From NBC LA:
Officers are searching a neighborhood west of downtown Los Angeles for a gunman who ambushed two detectives as they arrived Tuesday morning at a Los Angeles Police Department station in what the police chief called an "attempt to assassinate" members of the department.Based on the LAPD's last manhunt for Chris Dorner, I'd say it's just a matter of time before these paramilitary trigger-happy cops shoot up a bunch of random cars filled with unarmed elderly women. If you live in this area I suggest barring your doors and fleeing, and if you get back and your house has been burned down, be sure to feign surprise.
The Mid-City area search for the gunman forced closures along a half-mile stretch of La Brea Avenue and one mile of Venice Boulevard. Businesses in the 25-square block around the Wilshire Community Police Station (map) remain closed and a shelter-in-place order was issued for residents.
Several SWAT units, using armored vehicles and at least one canine unit, were focusing on an apartment complex in the Mid-City area, located about five miles west of downtown Los Angeles.
[...]The manhunt began after the detectives were ambushed at about 4:30 a.m. by the gunman at the driveway entrance to Wilshire Community Police Station. Aerial video showed the detectives' white sedan with bullet holes and shattered windows in front of the entrance gate, which is operated by swiping a key card.
[...]One detective has been with the department for 20 years, the other for 11 years, Smith said. Smith said their injuries might have been caused by a bullet, bullet fragment or shattered glass from the vehicle.
