A Los Angeles Police Department officer is hospitalized Thursday after being shot during a standoff with an active shooter in South Los Angeles.

The officer was taken to a hospital in an unknown condition, said LAPD Officer Lizeth Lomeli.

LAPD officers were called at 5 a.m. to Central Avenue and 34th Street where they have established a perimeter and are searching for the shooter, Lomeli said.

A person was taken into custody during the standoff but Lomeli could not confirm if the person was the shooter.
