VIDEO: 2 LAPD Police Officers Ambushed in Unprovoked Attack

Los Angeles police called off an intense 8-hour manhunt Monday morning that began after two officers were ambushed in an "unprovoked attack" in the Vermont-Slauson neighborhood of South L.A. the previous night, reports KTLA.

The officers from the LAPD's 77th Division were responding to an unrelated radio call Sunday around 9:30 p.m. on Hoover Street near 66th Street when two men allegedly opened fire on their patrol car, according to Los Angeles Police Department Detective Megan Aguilar.

Several rounds were shot in the direction of the officers, LAPD Capt. Lillian Carranza said. "This was a completely unprovoked attack," she added.

One of the officers returned fire toward the alleged gunmen, but it was not immediately clear whether either was hit.

Neither officer was injured.

Police detained one man, who was not arrested, and recovered a weapon at the scene, Aguilar said, declining to specify what type of firearm was found.

In the wake of the shooting, LAPD went on tactical alert and initiated a massive manhunt for the second shooter. They are still investigating leads, although the manhunt has been called off.
