    A pursuit of a burglary suspect on the Los Angeles side of Kings Road led Los Angeles Police officers into an apartment complex in West Hollywood, resulting in the shutdown of Kings Road from Waring Avenue to Willoughby Avenue, along with parts of Orlando Avenue.

    According to witnesses, the commotion began at roughly 10:30 a.m., with a police helicopter hovering overhead for hours in search of the suspect believed to be in the vicinity.

    The police activity initiated as a manhunt. LAPD K-9 dogs were brought to the scene to assist in locating the suspect. Once found, a standoff lasting hours ensued between the suspect and LAPD officers. Video footage provided by West Hollywood resident Whitney Dunn shows the suspect in handcuffs being turned over to paramedics around 2:15 p.m. The man was then transported to a nearby hospital. The extent of his injuries remains unknown.

    “Manhunt” Why are you so quick to gender? Because this person has been arrested? There should be equity in arrest numbers to reflect the gender balance in society.

    Why don’t you shut your pie hole? It’s just a term. It’s not a new term and nobody cares about gender or anything anymore. We’re trying to correct wokeness I don’t care about this made up names and the non-binary crap either. If you look like a man, I’m gonna call you one if you’re dressed like a woman and you have a beard I’m gonna call you a man a simple as that, and you sound like a pansy, and gets butt hurt by getting in Events that don’t involve you
