One local affiliate for CBS News explained via an interview on live television that the response issued by local law enforcement was “massive” and ended up amounting to a number fo square blocks worth of emergency vehicles spread out across the surrounding area.

The group of officers were known to be a part of the Metropolitan Division’s K-9 unit.

LAPD was moved to a complete citywide tactical alert throughout the entire ordeal, which meant that area authorities were only responding to calls that were deemed to be life-threatening because of the massive level of resources which were being utilized in the response to the shooting incident.

“I deeply appreciate their service, and let them know that their city stands with them,” explained Mayor Karen Bass as part of a news conference. “And I very much look forward to their recovery. My heart goes out to the officers’ families who tonight got the phone call, or the knock on the door, that they dread every day that their loved ones go on duty.”
