Officer-Involved Shooting Occurs in Foothill NR13224cj

Los Angeles:  LAPD Foothill Area officers were involved in an Officer Involved Shooting while investigating a shooting call.

On June 30, 2013, around 11:50 a.m., uniformed Foothill Area Patrol officers responded to an “ADW Suspect Shots Fired Now” radio call in the 12700 block of Van Nuys Boulevard.  When the officers arrived they observed the suspect walking east on Van Nuys Boulevard armed with a handgun.  The suspect fired his weapon at the officers and an Officer Involved Shooting (OIS) ensued.  The suspect was struck by gunfire and fell to the ground, where he was taken into custody.  Los Angeles Fire Department rescue ambulance responded and pronounced the suspect deceased at the scene.    

The involved officers were not injured.  A 9 mm semi-automatic pistol was recovered from where the suspect was taken into custody.

Force Investigation Division responded to the incident and will conduct a thorough investigation of the officer-involved shooting.  Robbery Homicide Division detectives have also responded and are investigating the crimes against the officers.

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