BREAKING! Ambush assassination attempt on police officer at LAPD precinct station
It sounds like someone tried to ambush an LAPD officer at the San Pedro precinct station tonight.

The details are sketchy right now:
The man involved in the confrontation ran from the police station, entered a vehicle, and was chased by other officers to the area of 18th Street and Pacific Avenue where the man was taken into custody, according to an LAPD officer at that scene.
Hopefully the officer wasn’t seriously injured.
Other officials said it appeared the officer was struck in the head at the same moment a second officer was firing at the alleged attacker.
It happened just before 10:00 p.m. in or near the lobby of the Harbor Station, located at 2175 John S. Gibson Blvd. The lobbies of LAPD stations have often been closed to the public in recent months due to the coronavirus pandemic.
I’ll update if there’s more information about this incident released tonight.
