About four to six people climbed out of the store window.

A woman at a Gelson's supermarket across the street said gunfire was heard in that store and that everyone dove to the floor.

Another Eastsider reader on Facebook said the police chase went right past her at Hyperion and Rowena. They would not comment on whether shots were fired or if any hostages had been taken.

Traffic in the Los Feliz, Silver Lake and Atwater area quickly jammed up and the LAPD urged the public to stay away from the area.

The store is at 2738 Hyperion Ave., between Los Feliz and Rowena Avenue. It's free to sign up!
