One person was injured in “an unknown act of violence” on the Harbor (110) Freeway in South Los Angeles Thursday, prompting a full closure of the northbound lanes in the vicinity as authorities investigated the incident.
Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics were called just after 3:55 p.m. to the northbound side of the Harbor Freeway south of Century Boulevard on what was initially reported as a traffic collision and found the victim injured at the scene, the department’s Margaret Stewart told City News Service.
The person was taken to a hospital in unknown condition.
The California Highway Patrol shut down all northbound lanes of the freeway in the vicinity to allow for an investigation, and all traffic was being diverted onto the Glenn Anderson (105) Freeway.
ABC7 reported the CHP was investigating “an unknown act of violence” at the location, but further details were not immediately available.
