A suspected gunman who shot at an escort following an argument in East Hollywood Thursday morning was taken into custody, police confirmed.
The shooting was reported about 4:45 a.m. in the 1200 block of North Edgemont Street, said Officer Rosario Herrera with the Los Angeles Police Department.
The suspected gunman apparently got into an argument with the escort after calling her to his residence, said Officer Norma Eisenman with the Police Department.
When the escort tried to leave, the unidentified gunman allegedly went after her and shot at her car.
The escort was not struck by the gunfire, Eisenman said.
Responding officers were not able to immediately locate the gunman and had to set up a perimeter around the area, Herrera said.
Aerial video from Sky5 showed several patrol cars and officers stationed at the intersection of Edgemont Street and Fountain Avenue.
Investigators believed the gunman could have been inside a nearby residence, Herrera said.
Hours later, the Police Department confirmed the suspected gunman was in custody.
