HAWTHORNE, Calif. -- (KTLA) -- A Los Angeles Police Department officer and a homicide suspect were both shot and wounded when a lengthy pursuit ended in a gunfight at a gated residential complex in Hawthorne on Thursday morning, according to LAPD Chief Charlie Beck.

The incident began at 117th Street and Avalon Boulevard, when Los Angeles police attempted to serve warrants connected to a gang-related homicide that occurred in LAPD's Southwest Division on March 31 of this year, Beck said at an early afternoon news conference.

As they attempted to serve the warrant, police became aware of one of the four homicide suspects driving away. The individual — whose name officials later gave as Qasim Knox — fled, and LAPD personnel initiated the chase, according to the chief.
