LAPD officers responded to several 911 calls of a shooting in the 9500 block of Highridge Place just after 9 am

A black car seen speeding away from the area drove down the hill into Beverly Hills, where Beverly Hills police stopped it near the corner of Rexford and Santa Monica. The driver was detained and was questioned, according to police.

A housekeeper in the area says she witnessed one woman with her hands around another’s neck and yelled at her to stop, then grabbed a piece of wood and banged it against a car to scare off the attacker. Police said the assailant fired one shot into the ground but did not hit anyone. The woman who was attacked was not shot, but suffered some minor injuries.

“I’m still a little shaken,” the victim said when she returned home.

According to a detective at the scene, the victim in this incident is the homeowner of where the attack happened, but the suspect is the person who lives there. A neighbor said the two women are ex-wives of the man who used to live there.

“She’s like a hoarder, you know?” the neighbor said. “She did not help the house, rats all over … she was very to herself.”

The LAPD and LAFD responded to the home where the shots were heard. Police believe that the encounter escalated as the women disputed over the home.

This is a breaking news story. More information will be added as it becomes available.
