A 12:15 p.m. call to police from someone who apparently saw two people breaking into a home on or near the 4900 block of Wilshire Boulevard prompted the the LAPD to shut the area down, forming a perimeter for a manhunt. Both suspects were recently taken into custody and the perimeter should be taken down, if not already, allowing traffic to resume. UPDATE: KTLA says the suspects were hiding in a storage shed and taken into custody by SWAT.
