North Hollywood units responds originally to a report of a "507," which is a public nuisance. But the call quickly escalates, and an LAPD officer describes a "suspect" as “wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans, covered in blood” and running down an alley.
An LAPD officer radios that security from a nearby building reported two men with guns that took off running eastbound through the alley just south of 10654 Magnolia. The officer also states that "there is also another vehicle involved, a Maroon Scion ... sporty type vehicle that was last seen eastbound on Magnolia."
An LAPD helicopter arrives on scene and the patrol units create a perimeter to
contain the suspects. One of the possible gunmen was wearing a “Cowboys hat.“
After some time, it is determined the men reported with guns and any possible victim/s may have successfully fled the area.
