Man Points Pistol at Officers NR10051ne

Los Angeles: On December 31, 2009, Metropolitan Division uniformed Police Officers III Oscar Ontiveros, nine years with the Department, and his partner were working crime suppression in the 77th Street Area.  

At around midnight, while in the area of Florence and Central Avenue, Officers Ontiveros and his partner heard numerous gunshots.  The officers proceeded to the area where they believed the gunfire had originated and while traveling west on 71st Street from Hooper Avenue they saw an individual, later identified as Antonio Razo Jr., 29 years of age, walking north across the street holding a blue steel semi-automatic pistol in his right hand.  Officers watched as Razo entered the front yard of a residence located in the 1200 block of East 71st Street via a hole in the wrought iron fence.  Ontiveros’ partner stopped the police vehicle along the curb, at this time Razo pointed a pistol at the officers.  An officer-involved shooting occurred.  Razo ran on foot and a perimeter was established.  Razo was later apprehended in the area of 1219 East 71st Street.  The pistol used by Razo was not recovered.      

The suspect was booked at Jail Division, Metropolitan Jail Section, for 245(d)(2) PC (Assault with a Deadly Weapon/Semiautomatic Pistol on a Peace Officer).  The suspect was not injured during the officer-involved shooting.  

Force Investigation Division personnel are investigating the crime against the officers and the officer-involved shooting.
