Shooting prompts closure of 210 Fwy. between Foothill and Sunland Boulevards

A parole agent shot Wednesday in Lake View Terrace was hit in the face. Police continued to search for the gunman, who was considered armed and dangerous.

The officer's injury was not life threatening, police sources said, and the shooting appears to have occurred at a residence on Foothill Boulevard. The L.A. County Sheriff's Department was handling the investigation.

The shooting, sometime after 1 p.m., caused officials to close the 210 Freeway in both directions as they searched for the gunman.

Aerial footage showed law enforcement vehicles surrounding a house.

Foothill Boulevard also was shut down.

Details of the shooting were unclear, and it's unknown if the assailant was a parolee.

The 210 Freeway was closed from Foothill Boulevard to Sunland Boulevard.
