Police searching for man with a gun in Silver Lake*

eastside911chopperAn LAPD helicopter is hovering over the border of Silver Lake and Echo Park tonight as officers search for a man with a gun south of Sunset Boulevard, according an officer with the Rampart Division. The officer had no further details but a resident reported that police cars were located near the corner of Coronado and Kent streets at about 11:30 p.m. as a low-flying helicopter with a spotlight circled the neighborhood.

* Update: Search was called off after the suspect was not found, said Rampart Division Lt. Wes Burhmester in a comment to this post.

  1. Last night (Friday) at about 10:45 pm, an officer patrolling at Rampart Blvd. and Bellevue St. saw a male on the sidewalk look in his direction, and hold what looked to be the butt of a gun in his waistband. The subject ran northbound as the officer established a containment, on the ground and with the helicopter.

    At about 11:20, the containment was dismantled after it could not be established the subject was inside. Just after that happened, a citizen phoned and advised of a man in their back yard, near the just disbanded containment. Officer returned and detained one individual for investigation, but he was not the object of the original search. Following this, the operation concluded. No discarded guns or contraband were found.

CYS is nothing but a bunch of pathetic idiots that have nothing else better to do. Not to mention you guys are no writing style , and you’re weak AF robbing people with your little homies. All it takes is for someone from your crew to snitch , and its a wrap. Heck it doesn’t even have to be someone from ur crew. It can be an elder that knows most of you guys , and parents to drop a whole roll of dimes. Or maybe an IP trace ? XD
