Updated: The officer involved in the below incident has been identified as Police Officer II Stuart Jaye.

Los Angeles:
  On Sunday April 13, 2014, around 3:40 p.m. Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Hollywood area officers responded to a vandalism radio call in the 5200 block of Sunset Boulevard, at the “99 Cent Store.”  Prior to the officer’s arrival, the radio call was upgraded to a “415 Man with a Knife.”

When the officers arrived at the location, they observed the male suspect outside the store, still armed with a knife.  The suspect confronted officers and an officer-involved-shooting occurred.

Los Angeles Fire Department personnel responded and pronounced the suspect dead at scene.  No officers were injured.

A knife was recovered at scene.

Los Angeles Police Department Force Investigation Division (FID) responded to the incident and will be handling the investigation of 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.
