A suspected gunman being pursued by police reportedly fired shots and went into a Trader Joe's store in Los Angeles on Saturday, where he has barricaded himself in and may have taken hostages, local media reported.

Aerial footage from local TV stations NBC Los Angeles and CBS Los Angeles showed people leaving a store window using a rope ladder and police carrying children to safety through a parking lot.

There was a heavy police presence outside the store in the Silver Lake section of the city, the footage showed.

Los Angeles police said there was a pursuit with a suspect emerging from a vehicle at the store. They would not comment on whether shots were fired or if any hostages had been taken.
