Police responded in large numbers to a call in Nickerson Gardens to a large, angry crowd that appeared to throw rocks and bottles at officers.

LAPD officers were conducting an investigation in the area when the riot started at around 10 p.m.

Barriers were set up as well as air support copters were called in to control the crowd. 

After an hour most of the angry had disappeared and it wasn't made clear if anyone was arrested or how many were taken into custody.
