LAPD Officers Pursue Armed Suspect, Confrontation Results in Shooting

"LAPD Officers Pursue Armed Suspect, Confrontation Results in Shooting"

 

Los Angeles: On Friday, April 12, 2002, at approximately 4:08 p.m., two Los Angeles Southeast Area Police Officers, accompanied by a California Parole Officer, were on patrol traveling eastbound on 91st Street from Hoover Street. At the 600 block of West 91st Street, the officers observed a male, later identified as 19 year-old Kendraey McCall, riding a bicycle on the sidewalk of 91st Street, toward the officers black and white police vehicle.

The officers got out of their car and they approached McCall and ordered him to stop. McCall then complied, but according to officers, he refused to place his hands on his head as ordered and then ran away eastbound on 91st Street. As officers pursued McCall on foot, they observed him tugging at his pants with his right hand, and as he was vaulting a fence, they saw him stop and remove a handgun. Turning toward the pursuing officers, McCall then pointed a handgun at one of the officers. Fearing for his life, the officer then drew his service revolver and fired at McCall, striking him in the upper torso.

McCall was transported to Martin Luther King Hospital where he later died from his wounds.

The investigation into this incident is ongoing and is being conducted by the Department’s Critical Incident Investigation Division. Investigators assigned to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office are conducting a concurrent investigation. Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to call the Los Angeles Critical Incident Investigation Division at 213-485-6475 during normal business hours. After hours, call the 24 hour toll free number at the Detective Information Desk, 1-877-LAWFULL (1-877-529-3855).

This press release was prepared by Public Information Officer Jack Richter, Media Relations Section, 213-485-3586.
