Police established a barrier around a South Los Angeles home Monday in a standoff with an man suspected of involvement in a shooting that left the victim with a gunshot wound to the leg, authorities said.
Officers responded to the shooting in the 1600 block of East 47th Street about 8 a.m., finding a man who was shot in the thigh, said Capt. David Kowalski of the Los Angeles Police Department's Newton Station.
In a four-minute pursuit, responding officers chased three individuals who fled in a vehicle. The chase ended in the 1300 block of East 59th Street (map), where the vehicle's occupants fled and tried to hide in residential yards, Kowalski said.
Two of them were eventually taken into custody, but a third man had barricaded himself inside a random home on the block where the pursuit ended, Kowalski said. A SWAT team was responding.
"They are searching and negotiating with that suspect to get a peaceful resolution to this incident," Kowalski said.
The two who had been taken into custody were "at a police facility," and investigators were trying to determine their involvement, Kowalski said.
The shooting victim, a man, was shot in the thigh and was in stable condition, Kowalski said.
Police initially described the shooting as an attempted robbery.
