“Crazy night in WeHo” posted resident Michael Thomas on his Facebook page. “At 4:17am the neighborhood awakened to gun shots and helicopters. Tried to go back to sleep. At 5:38, I heard voices below. Got outta bed to investigate and saw they had caught a suspect underneath my living room window! It’s all over the news. Four people shot. CRAZY!”
According to reports, LASD is treating the four gunshot victims as possible suspects in the incident.
NBC Los Angeles reports that no arrests have been announced and the circumstances that led to the shooting are unclear.
