Man Shot at by Police

Los Angeles: Police shot at a man possibly armed with a firearm Friday evening.

On July 6, 2007, at about 5:50 PM, officers were westbound on 87th Place approaching Crocker Street when they observed the suspect, Corey Bowman, riding a bicycle in the middle of the street impeding traffic.

The officers observed the suspect with a bulky object in his right front pants pocket, while looking over his shoulder at the officers. As the suspect reached mid-block, he rode the bicycle up onto the sidewalk, which placed a parked semi truck between him and the officers' vehicle. The suspect suddenly stopped, and jumped off his bicycle.

Officer Goosby, the driving officer, stopped the vehicle and Officer Espinoza exited. As he did so, he looked under the semi trailer and observed the suspect removing a silver metal object from his right front pants pocket. Believing the suspect was arming himself; Officer Espinoza fired three rounds at the suspect from his service weapon. The suspect immediately fell to the ground and was taken into custody.

During a search of the suspect, officers recovered a four-inch silver folding knife and five silver colored watches from his right front pocket. A search was conducted of the surrounding area and no firearm was recovered. The suspect was not injured and after a thorough investigation, he was ultimately released from custody without being charged.

No officers were injured. Involved officers are Metropolitan Division Police Officers Anthony Espinoza, 29, 8 years with the Department, and Officer Joseph Goosby, 29, 8 years with the Department

Force Investigation Division personnel responded to the scene and are handling the investigation.
