The shooting ambush of two undercover detectives outside the Wilshire Division station Tuesday morning “was a blatant attempt to assassinate two of the people who protect this community,” LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said.

Police stations across Los Angeles beefed up security after the detectives were fired upon. The officers are in “good spirits” and have returned to duty after suffering only minor injuries, Beck said at the start of a weekly address to the police commission.

The manhunt was continuing in Mid-City. All of the LAPD’s K-9 units were dispatched to assist in the search, along with four canine teams from the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.
