Officer Involved Shooting in 77th Area NR14028ne

Los Angeles: On Tuesday, January 14, 2014, around 05:30 a.m., a street robbery occurred in the Wilshire Area with a cellular telephone being one of the items taken.  A follow-up investigation led officers to the 1000 block of West 62nd Street, in 77th Street Area.  After Wilshire and 77th Street Patrol Division personnel established containment on the residence, the suspect momentarily exited the front door holding what was believed to be a handgun.  This portion of the incident was captured on local television news video.  During the standoff, the suspect yelled verbal threats that he would shoot and kill officers.

Metropolitan Division Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) responded to the incident.  As they began to deploy on the residence, the suspect exited the front door, extended his left arm with what appeared to be a handgun in his hand.  Metropolitan Division SWAT Police Officer III Howard Ng perceived this as a deadly threat and an officer involved shooting occurred.

Los Angeles Fire Department personnel responded and treated the suspect for a gunshot wound.  The suspect was pronounced dead at scene.  A search warrant was obtained.  Although there was no weapon recovered, a television remote control was located in close proximity to the suspect and booked as evidence.  There were no officers injured as a result of the incident.    

The Los Angeles Police Department Force Investigation Division (FID) responded to the incident and will be handling the investigation of the officer-involved shooting.

The investigation will ultimately be reviewed by the Chief of Police, Office of the Inspector General and The Board of Police Commissioners for compliance with the Department’s use-of-force policy which states that an officer’s use-of-force actions must be objectively reasonable.  Additionally, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Justice System Integrity Division will conduct a comprehensive review of the facts of the officer-involved shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call Force Investigation Division at (213) 486-5230. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247).  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.” Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
