One person was arrested Monday night after Los Angeles police officers were fired upon with a paintball gun in Boyle Heights, authorities said.
The officers had responded about 9:09 p.m. to an unrelated call in the 3100 block of Fairmount Street (map), about a mile south of the 10 Freeway, according to Officer Drake Madison, spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department.
The shooting incident occurred shortly after 9:30 p.m., Madison said.
No officers were injured, the department said. It was unclear if any of them had been struck by paintball rounds.
A perimeter was set up in the area, and police were seen going from house to house as an LAPD helicopter circled overhead.
The arrest was announced shortly before 11 p.m. The name of the person in custody was not immediately released, and it was unknown if a paintball gun was recovered.
