West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station investigators are searching for a suspect who allegedly fired a gunshot at approximately 2 a.m. on Feb. 18, shattering a window at West Hollywood City Hall, located at 8300 Santa Monica Blvd.
Lt. Bill Moulder said members of the janitorial staff were inside the building, heard the window shatter and called police. Nobody was injured, Moulder added.
Detectives believe the gunshot was fired from a passing vehicle. No threats against West Hollywood City Hall or any members of city government have been logged, he added.
“Detectives are investigating what happened and who did it,” Moulder said. “There was nothing leading up to this. We don’t have any information in terms of direct threats.”
West Hollywood City Hall was closed when incident occurred and the window has been repaired. City Hall remained closed on Feb. 18 while the investigation continued, and reopened to the public for in-person appointments for services on Tuesday, Feb. 22.
Moulder encouraged anyone with information about the gunshot to call the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station’s detective bureau at (310)855-8850. For information about appointments for services at West Hollywood City Hall, call (323)848-6400, and visit weho.org.
