Gunshots Fired on Benedict Canyon Drive

Benedict Canyon residents have inquired about the ground and air police presence in Benedict Canyon Monday 8-5-13, early evening, and of hearing gun shots fired.

LAPD informed the BCA that Officers responded to several 911 calls of shots fired in the 1600 block of Benedict Canyon.  The Officers investigation revealed there was a business dispute between 3 males, two of whom reside at and recently rented the residence.  During the dispute an unknown male (most likely one of the 3 present) fired approximately 8 shots into the air.  Since there were no witnesses who could identify the individual doing the shooting no arrest was made.  A full investigation was conducted and all persons were identified and interviewed.  Shell casings were recovered as evidence and this incident is currently under investigation.
