LAPD has multiple blocks closed off around 6th and Spring, where shots are reported to have been fired from a room in the Hayward Hotel. The situation is still developing, and we'll try to get an update. Portions of Spring, Main, Broadway and 6th are closed.

Update (9:45): Shooter is in custody. Shots were fired from the second to the top floor of the Hayward. Local artist Emmeric was at 626 Reserve and was the one who called LAPD.

Update (10:15pm): I have to say thanks to Benjamin Pezzillo for keeping me up to date as this situation progressed. I posted this story from Dodger Stadium, where Kathy and I were with some friends watching the Cardinals take a 4-0 win. We just returned home, and the only sign of what took place is a cluster of LAPD officers down the block talking.
