Silver Lake - Police have surrounded the Silver Lake Trader Joe's this afternoon after a shooting suspect being chased by police crashed his vehicle outside the market and then ran into the store where he has barricaded himself, police said.

A suspect being pursued by police crashed his vehicle, got out and ran into the store on Hyperion Avenue, LAPD Officer Mike Lopez told CNN.

Lorraine Perrotta, who lives in the Silver Lake neighborhood, says she was getting ready to park her auto Saturday afternoon when she heard six gunshots.

Twenty-two people are believed to be hiding in a closet and are now texting police.

A woman believed to have been shot was dragged away from the entry while unconscious.

Several shoppers described on social media a terrifying scene of gunfire, people running for cover and hiding as the gunman ran into the store.

A lockdown is happening with the entire area being evacuated.

Los Angeles Police Department tweeted: "There is an active police incident at the Trader Joe's near the intersection of Hyperion Ave and Griffith Park Blvd in Silverlake".

Photos posted on social media show a vehicle crashed outside the store entrance as heavily armed police swarm the area.

Police are advising residents to stay clear of the area.

TV helicopters showed police rescuing a group of children from the store, while other views showed people leaving through the front door with their hands up.

Witnesses are telling local TV news reporters that multiple shots were fired and that people remain inside the building, but police have not confirmed that.
