Officer Involved Shooting of Armed Suspect in South Los Angeles


Los Angeles: A man who pointed a gun at police results in an officer involved shooting in south Los Angeles.

On June 11, 2006, at about 1:40 AM, California Highway Patrol Officers Armando Gaona and Daniel Max parked their marked black and white police vehicle in front of a restaurant at 2805 S. Figueroa Street.

As Officer Max exited the vehicle he observed two male Blacks inside of the restaurant, one armed with a handgun. The suspect with the handgun observed Officer Max, pointed his handgun at Officer Max and fired at least one round.

Officer Max armed himself with his department issued service pistol and fired multiple rounds at the suspect, striking him. The suspect ran out of the restaurant and collapsed in the parking lot. The second suspect ran out the back door from the restaurant and was taken into custody by responding officers.

Los Angeles City Fire Department Rescue Ambulance responded and transported the suspect to California Hospital where he died from his injuries.

The names of the suspects are being withheld due to the on-going criminal investigation.

No officers were injured.
