LAPD officers, along with SWAT officers, have caught two suspects in connection with two armed robberies that took place in Sherman Oaks this afternoon, reports the Daily News. Two other suspects are still on the loose.

One of the robberies took place near Saticoy Street and Haskell Avenue, and the other was by Burnet Avenue and Keswick Street, according to the L.A. Times. The suspects were followed by a witness at one point, who they fired at but who was unhurt.

Encino Patch reports that police surrounded a house in Sherman Oaks earlier this afternoon where they believed the suspects were hiding in the backyard, and apprehended two of them. They were called to the house by neighbors.
