A man suspected of opening fire after an argument at a gas station in Mission Hills, then running through nearby neighborhoods, was taken into custody Wednesday after a nearly four-hour search.
Police received a shots fired call at 1:50 a.m. and were sent to a gas station at Devonshire Street and Woodman Avenue, where they learned that a suspect had gotten into an argument and fired at the ground, according to Los Angeles police Sgt. George Diaz.
The suspect fled the scene and officers set up a perimeter around the area of San Jose Street and Lemona Avenue in an attempt to capture him, Diaz said.
Officers used police dogs to capture the suspect, said Officer Christopher No with the Media Relations Section.
The suspect was considered armed and dangerous and residents were told to stay indoors while officers searched for the man, said Diaz.
