Three Los Angeles Police Department officers were hospitalized in unknown condition Wednesday evening after being shot and wounded in Lincoln Heights, and a suspect was barricaded in a residential garage, according to multiple reports.

According to reports from the scene near Mission Avenue and North Broadway, police arrived around 4:30 p.m. regarding a suspect wanted for an unknown felony, and shots were fired some two hours later.

The officers have been taken to County-USC Medical Center, are in stable condition and expected to survive, KCAL9 reported.

There is a massive police presence at the scene, and the LAPD reports that officers have established a perimeter.

At least three SWAT Bearcat vehicles are on the scene along with K-9 officers, KCAL9 reported.
