REPORT: SHOT FIRED AT PRO-TRUMP CARAVAN IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY
DEVELOPING STORY: Shots were fired at a pro-Trump caravan making its way through Woodland Hills in Los Angeles County.
It happened one day after a pro-Trump supporter was killed in the streets of Portland, Oregon after a separate caravan rally.
KNX reporter Emily Valdez reports that the shots were fired from an apartment window on Ventura Blvd. Fortunately, there were no injuries. However, she reported that a tire on one of the vehicles was blown out.
A Los Angeles Daily News reporter said he was told by police that three men were throwing bottles at the caravan from a nearby building.

“Moments later, someone called police saying the men had brandished a firearm and fired at least once at the caravan,” LAPD spokesman William Cooper told the newspaper.
Prior to the shooting video showed a number of cars and trucks driving through the area adorned with American flags and Trump 2020 flags. It appeared to be a festive mood.
The suspect is reportedly barricaded inside the apartment, the news radio station reports.
The Todd Starnes Show team has compiled video footage of what happened below:

MAGA rally in Woodland Hills, CA (San Fernando Valley) Sunday morning. Pickup trucks flying flags, lots of honking and yelling. Yet traffic was not blocked. They took over the parking lot of Taft High School. Police presence included cars and helicopters. So far, no violence. pic.twitter.com/11dMxv6WKd

I just got off the phone with LAPD — spokesman says three men in a building at 20500 block of Ventura Boulevard were throwing bottles at the pro Trump caravan.
One then may have pulled out a gun and fired a shot toward the caravan. No one injured. SWAT on the way. https://t.co/0Yqwd8lSnu
