A shootout between police and three suspects this morning prompted the LAPD to shut down an area of Boyle Heights as they began a manhunt. Still reportedly ongoing in the area around Cesar Chavez and Soto, police are searching for three male hispanics, approximately 24 to 27 years old, according to the LAPD. At 11:53 a.m., undercover officers from the city of Huntington Park--it's unknown why they were in L.A. city limits--observed the suspects engage in a burglary. The suspects shot at the officers, who in turn shot back. No one was hit, but the suspects escaped on foot.
