Authorities Monday were “working to identify” a person who may have been involved in a possible shooting during a pro-Donald Trump rally in Woodland Hills.
A group of Trump supporters took part in a vehicle caravan Sunday morning along Ventura Boulevard, heading toward Studio City. At about 11:30 a.m., there was a report of a possible shooting targeting the caravan as it passed by the Chalk Hills Court building in the 20300 block of Ventura Boulevard.
No one was struck by gunfire. But a woman driving eastbound on Ventura Boulevard heard what sounded like gunshots and then realized her tire was flat, the Los Angeles Times reported. Upon inspection, she said it appeared to have been damaged by a projectile, possibly a bullet or bullet fragment, police told The Times.
Responding officers and a SWAT team wound up surrounding an apartment building at 20568 Ventura Blvd., believing three suspects might be holed up inside. Following an hours-long barricade, the SWAT team made its way into the apartment at about 5:30 p.m., but found no one inside, according to the LAPD.
Officers, however, recovered a firearm during a search.
“No one is in custody at this point, but the investigation is ongoing,” police said Monday afternoon.
Further information was not immediately available.
