When I was around 12 I read in a History book that one night during World War 2 the sky's above L.A. County were filled with gun fire, I just dont remember why that event happened. So what day was it and was L.A. County attacked?

This occurred during the night of February 24/25, 1942.  On the 23rd a Japanese submarine shelled a refinery near Santa Barbara.  Many people believed that a larger attack was on its way.  The next night there was a false report of enemy aircraft over LA.  One battery opened up and others followed, sparking the “Battle of Los Angeles.”  Gunners sprayed the LA area with antiaircraft shells for two hours before the firing finally died off.  

HTH,
