Suspect Wounded During LAPD Officer-Involved Shooting NR11030bb

Los Angeles:   On Sunday, January 16, 2011, at about 10:30 p.m., Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Central Division officers were flagged-down by a citizen reporting a man armed with a gun, pointing it at residents near 5th and San Julian Streets. 

The officer’s investigation determined the man had entered a 4th floor apartment at the James M. Wood Apartments located at 506 South San Julian Street.  As officers approached the 4th floor apartment, they could hear yelling inside, indicating more than one person was in the room.

Officers formulated a plan to contain the room and call the suspect out when he suddenly opened the apartment room door and stepped into the hallway.  An officer-involved-shooting occurred and the suspect temporarily retreated into the apartment and then seconds later surrendered to officers in the apartment hallway.  Police Officer II Richard Linton, 4 years with the department fired 3 three rounds from a Department Remington 870 shot gun striking the suspect in both legs.

Officers located a female and a replica handgun in the apartment.  The woman was not injured and she was questioned and released.  The suspect received medical treatment for gunshot wounds to both legs and was released to be booked at the Los Angeles County Inmate Reception Center for assault with a deadly weapon. 

A witness who was on the street when the incident began described the suspect as upset over someone stealing his laptop.  The witnesses described the suspect as retrieving a gun from a backpack and pointing it at people including a woman in a wheelchair.

Detectives from the Department’s Force Investigation Division responded to the scene and are conducting an investigation into the OIS. 

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 officer’ 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.
