UPDATE: Why police are at vacant apartments near Westwood Village

(WSB photos)

6:54 PM: Here’s what brought all those police to the vacant-and-slated-for-redevelopment apartment site in the 2200 block of SW Barton, just southeast of Westwood Village. Police tell us at the scene that a stolen car was ditched outside the building and suspects were seen going into the building, so, with a bullhorn and K-9 team, they’ve been trying to get the suspects to come out.

7:04 PM: Our crew has since left but we’re hearing by radio that police have gone in and aren’t finding anyone, so far.

    I was driving by, coming from Westwood, when I noticed the police cars parked outside. That caught my attention, then just second later, I saw a young white male with a backpack sprinting between trees at the back of the lot and come running down the hill towards SW Barton.  With the police response there, it looked pretty suspicious that he was running from that building.  He hit the street and jogged across towards Westwood.
