Shooting Near Franklin High School Thursday

The shooting occurred at around 3:50 p.m.

Officers from the Los Angeles Police Department's Northeast Division are investigating a shooting that occurred on Thursday afternoon at around 3:50 p.m.  near near 700 Aldama Street.

Nobody appears to have been injured at the scene, though officers are still checking area hospitals for victims, said Sergeant Edward Perez of LAPD Northeast.

The department sent out a tweet at around 3:45 p.m. on Thursday afternoon stating that a "Shooting occurred 5 min ago near Franklin High School, 700 Aldama."

"It was near the school but not involving the school," Perez said. "Two males fired a group of people. The rounds went through the door of a garage nearby."

Perez said the two males then took off on foot and drove away in what witnesses described as a newer model silver Lincoln sedan.

The tweet asks that anyone with information to contact the department through the Crime Stoppers website.

Seems something is going on. Yesterday I had 7 gangsters fighting in front of my house. Took LAPD 1 hour to respond. I hate these people trying to make our neighborhood unsafe,

I saw a 'newer model Lincoln sedan' zoom down the 400 block of Avenue 52 in the direction of Figueroa right about that time-- although the car wasn't silver, it was most definitely tan. It caught my attention because of the speed (very fast) at which it was traveling, and I actually thought it may have been an under cover police vehicle. I heard the helicopter shortly thereafter.

Research states in the summer crime, especially assault and rape go up and this has stood the test of time. Are the targets of the shooters tenants of those darn apartments nearby. My mother lives near there and it pisses me off that she can't take a walk at 350pm.

Really Francisco? It is because of people like you and your narrow minded Ghettocentric attitude that Highland Park has become the cesspool that it has. Next time something happens to you and your family and you need the police I hope the community minds their own business as well. How would you like that? You sound like a disgruntled ex-convict recently paroled trying to blame society for your own demise as a descent person. Obviously you are not a contributing member of our society and a jerk!

"fired a group of people"ha.. They'll never get them off the street.takes up too much time and no money to back it up.Plus the cops are more corrupt than the gangsters.Thats why when you call them it takes more than an hour to respond.because they don't care..and as much things as ive seen involving cops..it might of been them too cause they have an undercover cop car exactly that color and the licence plate is the same too.what a coinscidence "chesterton" thought it was an undercover. I was talking to a cop this weekend and he said himself why it takes them that long to respond.I pretty much quoted him

where I live, officers come in a flash with even a small complaint like someones music is to loud, I think the majority of Cops do their best.
