Few details were available. But the shooting occurred after 6 p.m. on North Broadway at Mission Avenue.

The three officers, part of a canine unit, were seeking to find a suspect when that person opened fire, sources told The Times. The suspect was initially barricaded inside a building.

The condition of the officers is unknown at this time.

Videos on social media showed a large police presence in the area.

The LAPD issued a tactical alert due to the shooting, allowing them to keep officers on shifts.
