Rampart officer shot

The shooting in the Westlake district occurred as officers climbed the stairs of an apartment building at 4:55 am to answer an assault with a deadly weapon call. The 12-year veteran Rampart station officer is awake and alert at Cedars-Sinai in stable condition. Both the police chief and the mayor made appearances. Back on Coronado Street, the suspect was killed by return gunfire. The wounded cop, whose name has not yet been released, was the sixth LAPD officer to be shot at this month and the second to be hit.
