Police shot and wounded a man with a gun in Culver City today, cops said.

Officers confronted a man with a shotgun at or near a 7-Eleven store at Washington Boulevard and Huron Avenue about 15 minutes before 3 p.m., a Culver City police officer told us.

The suspect ...

... was hospitalized in unknown condition. No officers were wounded, he said.

There are reports that the suspect might have crashed a vehicle into a house nearby, the officer said, but it could not be confirmed if the collision was related to the officer-involved shooting.

Washington Boulevard was reportedly shut down between Overland Avenue and Sepulveda Boulevard while detectives investigate the shooting.

Motorists were encouraged to avoid the area.

[Update at 4:06 p.m.]: The L.A. County Sheriff's Department says some of its detectives were en route to the scene to investigate the shooting. Many smaller police departments use Sheriff's detectives for their officer-involved shooting cases.

Sheriff's deputies say the shooting happened about 2:30 p.m.

Culver City police, meanwhile, say the street closures include Washington Boulevard between Huron Avenue and Elenda Street and Washington Place east of Sepulveda Boulevard.
