Officer Involved Shooting Investigation

 

Los Angeles: On June 17, 2004, at about 8:15 p.m., Central Area Sergeant Sean Parker, 37 years of age and eight years with the Department, was in full uniform and driving a marked black and white police vehicle.

Sergeant Parker was stopped at the southeast corner of 5th Street and Grand Avenue, when a man approached the police car. The man pointed out a male Black in a green coat and told Sergeant Parker that the man had a gun. Sergeant Parker maneuvered his police car into a tactical position and began to exit the car. As Sergeant Parker began to rise from the car seat, the suspect, later identified as 50 year-old Robert Glasco, raised his arm and pointed a handgun in Sergeant Parker’s direction. Sergeant Parker heard Glasco fire one or two shots, resulting in an Officer Involved Shooting. Glasco, although wounded by return fire, ran for about half a block prior to being taken into custody by responding officers. Glasco’s handgun was later found and determined to be a starter gun.

Los Angeles Fire Department Paramedics responded and transported Glasco to a local hospital. Glasco is listed in critical condition.

Witnesses at the scene corroborated Sergeant Parker’s account of the incident.

The investigation is being conducted by Critical Incident Investigation Division Detectives, at 213-485-4011.

This news release was prepared by Public Information Officer, Jason Lee, Media Relations Section, at 213-485-3586.
