No victims were found, police said. The officer-involved shooting happened just before 1 a.m. at 11th Place and Union Avenue, said Sgt. Ricardo Acosta of the Los Angeles Police Department's Rampart Station.

Officers went to the area in response to a report of a drive-by shooting, Acosta said. "One officer fired at least one shot,'' he said.

Officers established a perimeter to investigate the officer-involved shooting and search for shell casings from the reported shooting that brought them to that scene, Acosta said.

The four suspects arrested were not hit by gunfire.
