Officer-Involved Shooting in Foothill Area NR13168bb

May 30,2013
Updated:

 
The officer involved in the below incident has been identified as Police Officers II Christopher Carr.


Los Angeles:  On May 16, 2013, around 2:20 p.m., Foothill Area Patrol officers responded to an Attempt Suicide call at a residence in the 13200 block of Corcoran Street.  The suspect’s cousin told officers that the suspect was holding two knives and threatening to hurt himself.  He also advised the suspect was sticking himself with syringes.
 
Upon the officers’ arrival, they observed 25-year-old Christen Eaddy standing in the driveway of the residence holding two knives.  The officers immediately requested back-up.  As the officers approached, they ordered Eaddy to drop the knives.  Eaddy ignored the officers’ commands and began to scrape the knives against each other as he advanced towards the officers.  As Eaddy continued to advance towards the officers, one officer deployed the TASER and simultaneously an officer-involved shooting occurred.  Eaddy fell to the ground and was taken into custody.

The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the scene and transported Eaddy to a local hospital where he succumbed to a single gunshot wound to the chest.  There were no injuries to the involved officers, and two knives were recovered at the scene.

Force Investigation Division Detectives are investigating the Officer Involved Shooting.

The investigation will ultimately be reviewed by the Chief of Police, Office of the Inspector General and the 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 is asked 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 LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
