|WE HEARD distinct gunshot pops, 5 or 6 of them, a few minutes after midnight in central Atwater Village. By 12:15am we had LAPD patrol cars in the streets. And a police helicopter is now darting between Riverside Drive and San Fernando Road, essentially the width of the neighborhood. If you know or saw or heard anything else, now might be a good time to call the Northeast LAPD, (213) 485-2563.|
UPDATE #1: 12:20am. All's quiet. Just the birds and the freeway.
UPDATE #2: 9:30am. Sorry, Silver Lake, looks like this one's on your books. Thanks to a commenter for this: "I live in the Archstone apartments and heard the gunshots. About 10 cop cars came by with an ambulance. Thank god no one was killed. The incident originated at the Riverside Gas station/repair shop."
Keeping track at home? Add this to the March 31 Joey Romo hit and the April 2 shootup of someone's house.
