Two Los Angeles Police Department officers were shot at overnight while conducting an investigation in the department's Southeast Division. 

Southeast Division Gang Enforcement Detail officers were responding to a radio call of shots fired when they themselves were met with gunfire after encountering a suspect in an alley. 

The officers, who were not injured, returned fire towards the suspect, according to LAPD. It's the second time in just over a week that LAPD Southeast gang enforcement officers have been shot at by suspects, according to LAPD chief Michael Moore. 

A short pursuit ensued after both parties exchanged gun fire. 

Two suspects, including the gunman, were arrested after crashing their getaway vehicle. Both are facing attempted murder charges. 

The exact location of this incident is unclear at this moment.
