A round of early morning gunfire today awakened numerous residents living near Echo Park Lake but apparently left no one injured. A man living on Laguna Avenue said he heard four shots at about 4 AM. “I went outside and didn’t hear any screaming,” he said via email.
Three LAPD squad cars responded to reports of shots fired but officers were not able to find evidence of a shooting, said Lt. Wes Buhrmester with the Rampart Division. His report:
“Officers checked the park and surrounding streets, and found no victims or suspects. Officers spoke with a couple of people on foot in the area, but none had any information regarding suspects or victims.”
