Los Angeles police have arrested two men and a woman on suspicion of carrying out a brazen robbery at the Nordstrom Rack in Westchester and holding 14 employees captive last week. The LAPD released few details Sunday evening other than to confirm they had arrested at least two suspected gang members, including at least one at a Phoenix motel Saturday. Police would not release the suspects' identities, nor would they detail how they were taken into custody or their alleged roles in the robbery and captive situation.

Los Angeles police are responding more quickly to emergencies, the result of a new policy directing officers to use red lights and sirens more often, officials said Thursday. The LAPD has reduced its average emergency response time citywide from 10.5 minutes to 6.5 minutes during the last two weeks, said Cmdr. Michel Moore. The most success has been in the northwest part of the San Fernando Valley during the day, where response has been cut from 15.5 minutes to 7.5 minutes, Moore said.

"Considering all that happened, I truly did come out the lucky one," Dickerson said Thursday in her first public remarks on last week's gunfire. "I only wish that there were three surviving victims instead of just me," she said. "May God bless you."
