Police Break Up Photography Event in Boyle Heights

A crowd of several hundred people in Boyle Heights that police originally thought were part of a rave turned out to be a photography group on a Saturday night photo walk.

Los Angeles police officers and an air unit responded to the crowd, reported to be about 300 people strong, a little after 7 p.m. in the area of Mission Road and Seventh Street.

A watch commander at the LAPD's Central Station originally said the throng was thought to have been part of some kind of rave in the area. The group was on a photo walk and had caused concern when some participants lit objects on fire so that they could take pictures of them.

No arrests were reported.
