Three men were arrested after a chase that began in the aftermath of a shooting at a tobacco smokeshop in Echo Park Tuesday.

A person was shot through a leg at the MG Smoke Shop at 2607 Sunset Blvd., near Rampart Boulevard, at 5:48 p.m., said Officer Mike Lopez of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Section.

The victim’s wounds were not life threatening, Lopez said.

A police helicopter responded to the scene and the crew saw a car take off at a high rate of speed, Lopez said.

The helicopter crew followed the suspect vehicle which stopped on the Harbor (110) Freeway and Flower Street, where three suspects gave themselves up nearly an hour after the shooting.

A fourth suspect may be on the lam, Lopez said.
