A shootout erupted in the early hours of Saturday morning at the intersection of Second and Main streets between suspects and Alhambra Police Department officers and resulted in multiple injuries, according to KTLA

Two suspects attempted to flee officers who were making a felony traffic stop on their vehicle.

In the process, police say the suspects first attempted to run an officer down with their vehicle, then officers opened fire on the suspects.

A witness at the scene told KTLA News she saw one of the suspects draw a gun and fire at a woman and a police officer, then she saw the police officers shoot that suspect.

An officer received non life threatening injuries. Two suspects were injured and treated at a local hospital.

  1. Alhambra is not immune to this type of situation; perhaps police need to use more resources in that area to try to de-fuse tense situations

  2. hopefully the suspects are no longer on this earth. we are having an influx of scum coming form east la.
