LAPD officers were responding to a domestic violence report before the shooting, which led to a barricade situation

A Los Angeles Police Department officer was injured during a response to a domestic violence call that led to a shooting and standoff Monday morning at a Hollywood Hills home.

Law enforcement sources told NBC4 that the gunman -- whose identity was not immediately available -- died after the confrontation that stemmed from a domestic violence call that was reported at about 8:05 a.m. in the 8100 block of Gould Avenue (map). Responding officers were involved in a shooting with someone inside the home, according to the police department.

Details regarding the officer's injuries were not immediately available, but the injuries are considering non-life threatening. The officer and a person who had been inside the residence were hospitalized.

It was not immediately clear whether the officer was struck by gunfire or shrapnel during the shooting.

At about 10:30 a.m., LAPD Chief Charlie Beck tweeted: "Spoke with our wounded officer. Thankfully she is doing well. Please keep her & our officers in your thoughts & prayers. @LAPDHollywood"

At least two LAPD armored vehicles were at the property off Laurel Canyon Boulevard during a standoff after the shooting.
