LAPD Manhunt in Mid-Wilshire LA (Updated)

A large butcher type of knife was found near the search scene of the two shooting suspects. Crime scene investigators worked the scene and removed the large knife to process it as possible evidence in the shooting this morning.

Traffic in the area is still highly jammed.

The LAPD conduct a large manhunt for at least two suspects who shot at LAPD detectives who were pulling in to the Wilshire LAPD station early this morning. The Detectives were hit by gun fire, and returned fire and the suspects left the scene.
A city wide tactical alert was called as LAPD continue to search for the suspects in the mid-Wilshire area of Los Angeles.
