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.
