A shooting in broad daylight on Sunset Boulevard near Wilton Place reportedly involved U.S. Marshals and personnel from the Los Angeles County district attorney's office firing on a suspect described as a "fugitive under surveillance," according to LA Now.

Few details have been made available about the case, though witnesses have told various media outlets they heard multiple gunshots and describe a hectic scene and aftermath. Weho Daily has an eyewitness account, and KTLA has aired amateur video from the scene.

According to LA Now, the suspect "was the subject of a warrant," and was being actively monitored. The motivation for the shooting, however, remains unknown right now. No members of law enforcement involved have reported being injured, and the suspect was taken to the hospital.
