Authorities are searching for a man accused of shooting a woman at the Sportsmen's Lodge in Studio City early Monday morning and fleeing the scene with their two young children.

Initial reports suggested the children were accounted for, however officials now say Michael Lajun Green is believed to have Maaliyah Green, 1.5-years-old, and Zyler Green, 6-months-old. Their photos were released by Los Angeles police to aid in the search.

The woman, who was reportedly shot in the head, called 911 and was taken to a hospital where she was listed in stable condition.  

Green, who has a prior domestic violence conviction, is considered armed and dangerous, said NBC LA.

"Unfortunately some of the information she gave out this morning ... was erroneous," said LAPD Lt. Alan Hamilton during a press conference outside the hotel. "Whether it was intentional or not, we have not verified."
