A suspect was wounded in a police shooting in the Hyde Park section of South Los Angeles Friday night.

No officers were injured in the shooting, which occurred about 8:45 p.m. in the area of Slauson and Brynhurst avenues, Los Angeles police Officer Mike Lopez said.

The wounded man was taken to a hospital, but no information about that person's condition was immediately available.
