By Hannah Fry Los Angeles Times LOS ANGELES — A man who authorities say was armed with a handgun and opened fire on two officers in their patrol car was killed by police in a shootout in El Sereno late Sunday. Two LAPD officers were stopped at Lombardy Boulevard and Alhambra Avenue about 11:30 p.m. when a man began shooting at them, Officer Drake Madison said. The man ran west through an alley toward Belleglade Avenue, where he exchanged gunfire with officers before continuing to flee, according to Madison. Shortly after, he was confronted by additional officers responding to the scene, who also fired at the man, Madison said.

Investigators recovered a handgun at the scene, Madison said. No officers were injured, but an LAPD patrol vehicle was struck by a bullet, authorities said. ©2019 Los Angeles Times
