**EVENING UPDATE**--Police have ID'd the suspect, he is 31-year old Giovanni Ramirez. Ramirez is charged with assault with a deadly weapon and is being held on a $1 million bond

Los Angeles police also say several people have been detained for questioning after search warrants were served in the case. The suspect was arrested early Sunday morning local time as an apartment complex was surrounded by LA police.
