SWAT team on scene in Atwater Village *

An LAPD SWAT team was called out this afternoon to an Atwater Village home after a DWP employee who was going to cut off power to the residence was confronted by a man with what looked like a rifle, according to an officer with the Northeast Division.  Police had the suspect contained in the home located near La Clede Avenue and Fletcher Drive. The officer said he had no further details about the incident, which prompted police to block off La Clede north of Fletcher at about 12 p.m., according to one resident.

  2. I heard it was the Gas Company not DWP but this could have gotten lost in translation either way. The actual incident is on Casitas, La Clede is just where the police have set up “camp”. Lots of SWAT, dogs, etc.

  3. @Jerome, I will add ” FREE power to the people!”

  4. I live right there on Seneca and that guy is cool as phuck! He once gave me a ride home when my bicycle broke down. He even offered to let me shower in his house since I looked tired.

  5. Looked like a bunch of Gas Company trucks alongside patrol cars.

  6. It was a set up by gas co workers .

  7. @Justion..if you live nearby why is he offering you a shower in his house? That just sounds creepy.

  8. haha dude you look tired you want a shower oh man.
