Los Angeles police officers combed the streets Wednesday in search of two pit bulls who allegedly tried to attack people at a South Los Angeles park.

A boy dialed 911 at about 9:30 a.m. about aggressive dogs trying to attack people in the 4700 block of Honduras Street.

"Parents were going inside their cars, running away, going inside the soccer fields," said Steven Gomez, who called police.

The dogs allegedly charged at police, who then opened fire.

Gomez said officers shot at the dogs three times. It was unclear if they were hit.

A city worker was injured, but it was unclear if he or she was actually bitten.

The pit bulls fled the scene and a search was underway.
