    Police have arrested a 16-year-old male and are still searching for the second suspect after shots were fired at two Los Angeles Police Department officers Friday night, officials said.

    The 16-year-old has been charged with attempting to kill police officers, according to LAPD.

    The gunfire was reported just before 6:30 p.m. in the 3500 block of Mission Road in Lincoln Heights, near the Department of Motor Vehicles, LAPD Officer Rosario Herrera said.

    The two plainclothes narcotics officers were not struck by the gunfire or injured, Herrera said. They did not shoot in return.

    The LAPD's Central Division was on a tactical alert, which means officers are not allowed to go home from work until the alert is lifted. The tactical alert was lifted just before 11 p.m. Friday.

    The outstanding suspect is described as a male hispanic in his 20's, according to LAPD.
