Highland Park — Police this afternoon are investigating reports of shots fired at or near the Highland Park Recreation Center in the 6100 block of N. Figueroa.
Two suspects described as Latino males wearing black hoodies were seen running south on Figueroa shortly after reports of shots fired were received at about 3:30 pm, said LAPD spokesman Drake Madison.
No victims have been found but the situation remains “fluid” as the investigation continues, according to Madison.
Twitter user Highland Park HLP said one person was seen running from the park with a limp. Simply Informed, which tweets about police scanner reports, said that multiple suspects may have shot at each other near the basketball courts. Neither of those reports could be confirmed by police.
At one point the search for the suspects apparently forced the closure of some lanes on the nearby Arroyo Seco Parkway (110 Freeway), according to ABC7.
Update @ 8:30 pm: No victims or suspects have been found, said Drake. Police did collect bullet casings at the scene of the gunfire, he said.
