More than two hours after the standoff began, officers were attempting to communicate with the shooter, “imploring him to surrender and avoid further injuries,” Sgt. Eric Gripp, a spokesman for the department’s public affairs office, said on Twitter.
Officers swarmed the neighborhood after the shooting. Video from a news helicopter showed more than 50 police vehicles at the scene.
The video also showed police officers kneeling and crouching behind various cars with guns drawn.
Just around 6:30 p.m. ET more gunfire could be heard at the scene.
Gripp also asked media helicopters to “pull back.”
President Donald Trump was briefed on the shooting, deputy White House press secretary Hogan Gidley said.
