LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck has released a surveillance video in hope that the public can identify a man believed to be the suspect in the shooting of two detectives.

In a press conference Wednesday, Beck showed the black-and-white video of a man who was carrying something that is believed to be a revolver.

The two detectives suffered minor wounds when they were ambushed outside the LAPD's Wilshire station early Tuesday.

Hundreds of officers sealed off 25 blocks of the busy Mid-City area for hours Tuesday and detained 10 people but never found the gunman.
