Police Detectives Ambushed

LOS ANGELES (June 25, 2013)—Two Los Angeles detectives are part of an undercover burglary task force returned to the Wilshire Division station and were using a keycard at the front gate when someone standing nearby shot at them at around 4:30 a.m. Tuesday, police said.

The detectives returned fire.

Cmdr. Andrew Smith said one detective had a minor wound to the back of his head and the other had a hand wound.

They were treated at a hospital and then returned to the station.

Police cordoned off a 25-square-block area to hunt for the gunman, who was dressed in black.

Three people have been detained, but police said only that they were persons of interest.

A citywide tactical alert was issued, meaning police officers were kept on duty past the end of their shifts.
