WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. -- Police have taken three people into custody, including two men that officers held at gunpoint for an hour on an apartment balcony in Woodland Hills.
Officers with the Los Angeles Police Department's Topanga division were called to the Avalon Woodland Hills Apartments on Ventura Blvd. around 6:10 a.m. Tuesday on reports of shots fired, according to Sgt. Greg Houser.
At one point, officers were seen looking at a car inside the parking structure. Soon after, they had cornered two men on a balcony.
At least three officers with guns drawn stood guard on an adjacent rooftop as the men held their hands in the air for about an hour.
Just before 8:00 a.m., both were taken into custody along with a woman who was apparently inside the apartment.
Police say they recovered a gun at the scene.
It was not immediately known what involvement the suspects had in the incident.
The building was not evacuated and no shooting victims were found.
Ventura Blvd. has been shut down between Winnetka and De Soto Avenues as a result of the investigation.
