Officer Involved Shooting, Results in Injury

 

Los Angeles: On Monday, January 27, 2005, at about 4:30 p.m., Los Angeles Police Department Officers Kevin Burke, six years on the Department and Officer Gerardo Morales, eight years on the Department, both were working Hollywood Area patrol, when they recognized a wanted Felony suspect, "Francisco Gonzales."

The officers were driving south on Kingsley Street at Fountain Avenue when they saw the wanted suspect an active gang member, driving a silver vehicle. The officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop, when the suspect fled in his vehicle. The officers went into pursuit until Mr. Gonzales crashed his vehicle into an innocent driver, after failing to stop for a stop sign, at Santa Monica Boulevard and Kingsley Drive. The suspect eagerly exited his vehicle and approached the officers when an officer involved shooting occurred.

A Los Angeles Fire Department Rescue Ambulance transported Gonzales to a local hospital where he remains under guard. Neither officer was injured during the confrontation.

The Los Angeles Police Department's Force Investigation Division Detectives are conducting an investigation of the incident.

This news release was prepared by the Los Angeles Police Department's Media Relations Section, at 213-485-3586.
