LAPD mistakes mass photo shoot for a “rave gone wrong”

LAPD mistakes mass photo shoot for a “rave gone wrong”

This past Saturday, a team of LAPD officers and a police helicopter were dispatched to LA’s hip Boyle Heights area last Saturday night to shut down what police originally thought was – according to NBC – a “rave gone wrong.”

Turns out, though, that the flashing lights were from a crew of photographers who’d gotten together to shoot long-exposure pictures of flames and sparks. The flash mob-style meet-up of amateur and professional photographers drew hundreds of attendees, local news station KCAL9 says, “worrying and confusing police.”

“Police say there was a large response because of the large crowd,” KCAL’s reporter said. “They thought the crowd was getting out of control.” The crowd of shooters apparently dispersed quickly once the police showed up en masse; watch news footage of the incident below.
