UPDATE

Updated:  The officers involved in the below incident have been identified as Police Officer II L. Ortiz, A. Corral and M. Ayala.


Los Angeles:
 
On Friday, December 13, 2013, around 10:00 p.m., the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department requested LAPD to take over a pursuit of a silver Chevrolet Corvette that Sheriff's deputies were pursuing for reckless driving.

Officers from Newton Division observed the vehicle along with the LAPD Air Unit, and LAPD assumed the pursuit as requested by LASD.

The pursuit terminated at the intersection of Los Angeles Street and Olympic Blvd when the suspect’s vehicle ran a red light and collided with an uninvolved vehicle with two occupants.

At that point the suspect’s vehicle came to rest at the southwest corner of the intersection and the suspect exited the vehicle and an officer involved shooting occurred.

The suspect was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.  The two occupants of the vehicle struck by the suspect’s vehicle were also transported.  One occupant sustained a shattered vertebra in her neck and a collapsed lung.  The second occupant complained of injuries to the face and body.  There were no officers injured during the incident.  No weapon was recovered.

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 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 www.LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
