Police have sealed off a section of Highland Park tonight as they search for a suspect who fired several shots at patrol officers.

No officers were hit during the shooting that took place at about 7:30 pm in the 200 block of N. Avenue 57,  said Lt. Richard Parks with the Northeast Division.  Parks said officers did not return fire after the suspect, described as a suspected gang member,  pulled out a handgun and shot five times at police.

The LAPD SWAT team and other officers are conducting a search on the ground as a police helicopter hovers overhead.

HLP90042  tweeted about the shooting and search that followed in a nearby alleyway and apartment buildings.
