Los Angeles police say gunman dead after shootout

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say a man suspected of shooting at officers and injuring one is dead after a four-hour standoff in a Hollywood Hills home.

Police Sgt. Barry Montgomery says it isn't clear if the suspect died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound or was injured during the shootout on Monday.

Officers responded to a domestic battery call shortly after 8 a.m. A female officer was struck by shrapnel or debris during an exchange of gunfire.

The suspect holed up inside the multi-story, single-family home. After roughly four hours, SWAT officers made entry and found the suspect dead inside.

Officer Wendy Reyes says officer is being treated at a hospital for injuries that aren't life-threatening.
