LA parole agent shot during manhunt

A parole task force showed up to search a 45-year-old man's residence

Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — An hours-long manhunt for a parolee suspected of shooting his parole officer in Los Angeles ended Wednesday with the man in custody, authorities said.

The parolee, whose name was not released, is a violent criminal with a long rap-sheet and a "two-striker," Los Angeles police Lt. Andy Nieman said. He was referring to the state's three-strikes law that imposes minimum mandatory sentences for those convicted of a third felony.

The parole agent was shot in the face after a parole task force showed up to search the 45-year-old man's residence for an unspecified violation of his parole, Nieman said. The agent was in stable condition, Los Angeles police said.

Several streets in the Lake View Terrace area and part of Interstate 210 were closed during the search. A private school, Delphi Academy, was placed on lockdown.
