Shots Fired at L.A. Paramedics

LOS ANGELES — Shots were fired at Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics early this morning as they entered the courtyard of a large apartment complex in Crenshaw on an emergency call, authorities said.

No one was injured and officials have not identified a suspect, said Sgt. Ed Clark with the Los Angeles Police Department’s Southwest Division.

About 2 a.m., Fire Department paramedics responded to a 911 call from the apartment complex in the 4100 block of Palmwood Drive, Clark said. When the paramedics arrived, someone “fired numerous rounds in their direction,” he said. One round went through a bedroom window in another apartment, Clark said.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at (877) 529-3855 or (877) 529-3855.
