ECHO PARK — There were a lot of booming going on across Echo Park Saturday night, with residents calling police and taking to Twitter to report hearing what sounded like fireworks or gunshots at midnight. Some residents blamed the noise on the filming of the Will Smith “Bright”. But police this morning said there were no reports of any shooting or arrests made.
Police did investigate the reports of a shooting earlier in the evening, at about 7:15 p.m., near Glendale Boulevard and Temple Street, said Officer Mora at the LAPD Rampart Division, which patrols the area south of Sunset Boulevard. But Mora, who declined to provide a first name, said officers could not find any victims.
Meanwhile, there were no reports of any anyone being shot or a shooting take place north of Sunset Boulevard, which is patrolled by the LAPD Northeast Division. “We didn’t have any incidents,” said Sgt. James Zboravan.
