A man who shot two Los Angeles police officers and holed himself up in a Willowbrook home is dead, police said Wednesday.
When an LAPD gang officer peered into the attic, he was shot. The officer was wounded in the cheek and neck and underwent surgery overnight, officials said.
Police were leaving the property after searching for a woman there when they smelled marijuana and decided to investigate, KTLA-TV reported.
Officers spoke with people inside the home and learned some were violating parole by being around the drug, according to KTLA.
"He has shown no regard for human life by shooting at our officers," LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith said of the gunman.
