There were no injuries resulting from a Pasadena police officer-involved shooting Friday afternoon in the 1900 block of North Raymond Avenue, authorities said.
One suspect and “his handgun” are in custody, police said.
Gang units officers were approaching a male suspect at 4:36 p.m. in the area near Raymond Avenue and Tremont Street when the suspect took off running northbound, Lt. Max Dahlstein said.
“There was an officer-involved shooting,” said Lt. Max Dahlstein. “Nobody was hit.”
The investigation is ongoing, Dahlstein said.
It is not known why the officers were attempting to contact the suspect when they approached him, or what caused them to open fire at the suspect.
A civilian who claimed to be a witness said she had seen undercover police in the area before she heard more than six gunshots. Almost immediately thereafter, she said, he heard the sound of sirens.
A police airship was on scene very quickly, she said.
Police have not released the name of the suspect as of this writing.
