      Los Angeles Police Department officers chased and arrested an armed man in Highland Park early Friday morning.

      Some 20 officers in about 10 cars set up a containment area around North Avenue 54, North Avenue 55 and Eaton Street after a man armed with a handgun was spotted there, Sgt. Mark Hamer of the LAPD Northeast Division told Highland Park-Mount Washington Patch.

      The suspect "ran from police officers—he got away from them—but was located and a handgun recovered," Hamer said, adding that the patrol officers had air support from a helicopter.

      The police activity lasted about an hour, roughly from midnight to 1 a.m., Hamer said. The suspect was taken into custody and brought to the Northeast police station. An investigation is underway.
