BOYLE HEIGHTS (CBSLA) – A man atop a church in Boyle Heights lit a fire underneath at least one cross on the roof. Reports suggest that the man was throwing things at Los Angeles Fire crews on the scene.
CBSLA’s Sky9 reporter Desmond Shaw is over the scene. The man, dressed in only shorts, has jumped from different rooftops three times.
Officers from the Los Angeles Police Department are following from the air and the ground.
As officers approached, the man grabbed a utility line and is using it to climb up to another rooftop, over a garage.
The individual continues to scale the side of building, dangerously using wires to climb up to new rooftops.
