Officers responded to the 6200 block of South Main Street (map) about 2 a.m. after receiving a radio call of a family dispute, said Capt. David Kowalski of the Los Angeles Police Department.

“There had been a shooting between family members in that area,” he said. Police “identified the suspect, and a foot-pursuit occurred.”

The officer-involved shooting occurred three blocks away, in the 5900 block of South Main Street, the LAPD said.

The man was taken into custody without incident and transported to a hospital with unknown injuries, Kowalski said, adding: “He was not shot.”

An investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
