LAPD officers unharmed in gunbattle with stolen-car suspects

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say two officers escaped injury during a car-to-car gunbattle with occupants of a stolen car.

Sgt. Barry Montgomery says the officers spotted the car around 12:10 a.m. Monday and began following it.

Montgomery says at some point there was gunfire from the stolen car and one or both officers returned fire.

The pursuit continued until the officers’ car crashed into a parked car.

The stolen car continued on and was later abandoned, but other officers located two suspects and took them into custody.

One of the suspects had an injury and was hospitalized in stable condition.

Montgomery says an unspecified weapon was located.

An extensive investigation is underway in the city’s northeast area.
