A woman armed with a firearm was wounded Monday in an officer-involved shooting in Silver Lake.

Officers were called about 3:30 p.m. to the area of Sunset Boulevard and Edgecliffe Drive to investigate a report of a woman with a gun, according to Officer Mike Lopez of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Section.

More than an hour later, an officer-involved shooting occurred and the woman was struck, Lopez said.

She was taken to a hospital, where she was undergoing surgery, but her condition was not immediately available, he said.

No officers were injured, Lopez said.

A firearm was recovered at the scene, he said.
