We're getting reports by a reader that "shit's going down around Santa Monica College at Pico and 18th."

KNX1070 is reporting that parts of PIco Blvd. have been shut down as police search for a suspect in the 20th/Delaware attempted murder from last summer. A police officer happened to see him at a liquor store when he took off. Three SWAT Teams have been deployed and the LAPD has lent the use of one airship.

About 40 officers are working on the search. Residents in the area are not being allowed to go home until the situation is over.
