A brief shooting incident occurred at the corner of Monte Vista Street and Avenue 56 on Monday evening, which resulted in stray bullets entering a nearby apartment unit, according to LAPD Northeast.
Nobody was injured in the shooting.
Detective Rick Ortiz, who heads the LAPD Northeast Gang Unit, reported that a suspect was "shooting a gun at the intersection of Monte Vista Street and Avenue 56 at around 7 p.m. on Monday."
According to Ortiz, at least one of the bullets penetrated a nearby building, landing in a residents living room.
Ortiz said they were unable to get a good description of the suspect.
"One of the witnesses said they saw a guy shooting a gun, but didn't have much more of a description," Ortiz said. "We don't know what he was shooting at, whether it was somebody else, or what. Incidents like this usually happen so fast. We get a report that there's shooting taking place, and by the time we arrive, everyone has run off."
