A woman was shot in the leg early Friday during a confrontation with Los Angeles police officers inside a Hollywood & Highland parking structure, officials said.
Police responding to a 1:24 a.m. call concerning an assault with a deadly weapon encountered the woman inside the subterranean parking structure of the shopping center, LAPD Lt. Michael Ling said.
LAPD Cmdr. Dennis Kato told KTLA that when officers arrived on the scene, they found the woman was smashing a scooter with a baseball bat during a dispute with another woman. At some point, she pulled out a handgun from her pocket, pointed it at a security guard, then at officers, he said.
