(LATIMES) — The search for a gunman believed to be involved in an attack on two police officers in South Los Angeles on Sunday night was called off just before 6 a.m. today, officials said.
A citywide tactical alert was called after the incident in which two men opened fire on a police patrol car driving southbound on Hoover Street near 62nd Street. Officers said they saw a man step off a curb, aim and shoot at them.
"It was an ambush," said Deputy Chief Bob Green. "They were fired upon without any prior contact with the suspects."
