Mission Officers Involved in OIS NR11189mjg

Los Angeles:  On April 27, 2011, at around 11:00 p.m., Los Angeles Police Department officers working patrol in the Mission Area were conducting extra patrol in the 8500 block of Cedros Avenue in Panorama City.  The officers were patrolling in response to a gang shooting that had occurred on the same street earlier that evening around 6:00 p.m.

As the officers were walking through an apartment building mid-block on Cedros, which is known for its continuing gang activity, they were confronted by a male Hispanic who was walking into the apartment building from the front.  The officers told the suspect to put his hands in the air.  The suspect refused to comply and instead, pointed a hand gun at the officers.  One officer fired one shot, striking the suspect in the abdomen.  The suspect was taken into custody and the officers immediately called for medical assistance.

Personnel from the Los Angeles Fire Department responded and transported the suspect to a local area hospital where he was treated for his injuries.  The suspect is in stable condition. There were no officers injured during the incident.  A loaded, .380 semi-automatic handgun was recovered at the scene.  

LAPD Mission Area detectives are handling the investigation into the initial shooting call and LAPD Force Investigation Division personnel are investigating the officer involved shooting.  The investigation will ultimately be reviewed by the Chief of Police, the Office of the Inspector General and 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 about this incident is urged to call Mission Area Detectives at 818-838-9810. 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 Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers 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.
