Alhambra Police Department officers patrolling the 2000 block of West Mission Rd early Sunday morning were involved in a shooting incident with two alleged burglary suspects, the L.A. County Sheriff’s Information Bureau reported.

The Sheriff’s Department, which is investigating the incident, said the incident occurred near a storage facility when Alhambra officers were investigating an apparent burglary at the storage facility. According to the SIB news release, the officer-involved shooting occurred when the suspects accelerated their vehicle toward an officer who discharged his weapon. 

The suspect’s vehicle continued eastbound on Mission Rd. at high speed with Alhambra Police Officers in pursuit. The chase came to an end when the suspect vehicle collided with a block retaining wall after turning southbound on Sixth Street. 

The suspects, both Latino females in their 20s, were arrested. One suspect, the driver, sustained a single, non-life threatening gunshot wound to an extremity. The passenger in the vehicle sustained non-life threatening injuries from the traffic collision. Both were taken to a local hospital for treatment and, later, booking.

No officers were reported injured in the incident.

Anyone with information on the incident is encouraged to contract Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500 or use the website http://lacrimestoppers.org

The Alhambra Police action early Sunday marked the second time in just over a week that Alhambra officers have been involved in a shooting. In the previous incident, a domestic violence complaint, officers responded to a call at the 1900 block of South Primrose and arrested a suspect after he attempted to drive his vehicle towed the officers. Bean bag rounds were used by officers in this incident, according to a press release from Alhambra Police. The suspect, Juan Gabriel Miranda, 46, was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries and booked for assault on a police officer and domestic violence.
