Suspect Points Gun at Officers NR10304nc

Los Angeles: Last Thursday in the early evening, an officer-involved-shooting occurred in the Adams area of Los Angeles.

On June 3, 2010, at about 6:23 p.m., Southwest Area plainclothes vice officers were in a city car in the area of Lucerne Avenue and Adams Boulevard.  The officers saw two individuals in what appeared to be a verbal argument.  Both individuals were yelling at each other from opposite sides of Adams Boulevard.  At this time, a car approached and the driver immediately produced a handgun and opened fire on the individual on the south side of Adams Boulevard.  The individual, who was also armed with a handgun, simultaneously fired back.  The car then drove westbound on Adams Boulevard.  

The armed individual ran southbound on Vineyard to an alley south of Adams Boulevard where the officers identified themselves and ordered the suspect to stop.  As the officers got out of their car, the suspect, armed with a small caliber semi-automatic pistol turned and pointed the gun at the officers and an officer-involved-shooting occurred.  The suspect was not struck by the gunfire and was ultimately taken into custody without further incident.  

A loaded, small-caliber pistol was recovered and no officers were injured.  Neither the car nor the second individual was located.

The LAPD Force investigation Division responded and is handling the officer involved shooting.
