Shots rumble near LA County District Attorney Jackie Lacey’s Granada Hills home, authorities say


GRANADA HILLS, LOS ANGELES (KABC) – A shooting took place near the home of LA County Prosecutor Jackie Lacey in Granada Hills on Saturday night after someone tried to steal a car, authorities said.

According to the Los Angeles Police Department, Lacey’s security team was involved in the incident, which was triggered by a car theft attempt around 6:20 p.m.

Police said the security detail had two cars in front of Lacey’s home. When a security officer stepped out of one of the cars, two suspects pulled up in their own vehicles.

Lacey’s personal security information investigators at the DA’s office noticed the suspects who tried to steal a car parked in the area. One of the officers opened fire during a confrontation with the suspects.

The two suspects fled the scene without being shot.
