Beanbag Rounds Subdue Suspect

Los Angeles: A possible attempt murder suspect led officers on a foot pursuit and failed to comply with commands, was taken into custody after being shot with multiple beanbag rounds.

On March 8, 2007, at about 4:20 PM, Northeast Division patrol officers were in the area of Avenue 63 and Arroyo Glen Street when they saw a male Hispanic whom they believed to be the possible suspect from a shooting, which occurred a few minutes earlier. The suspect ran from the officers and onto the roof of a shed to the rear of 206 South Avenue 63. The suspect ignored the officers' repeated commands to come down from the roof and continued to keep his right hand in his waistband area.

Officers deployed beanbag shotguns and as the suspect moved about the roof, one of the officers fired one round, striking his left eye. The suspect continued to ignore officers' commands and jumped from rooftop to rooftop of neighboring residences. Officers fired additional rounds until the suspect finally was subdued.

Paramedics responded to the location and treated the suspect at the scene. The suspect was excluded as the shooter by the witnesses. However, he was arrested for possession of a controlled substance.

The suspect has been identified as a 16-year-old juvenile, a resident of Highland Park.

Officer Craig Orange, 44, 11 years and 5 months veteran of the LAPD and Officer Mario Jacinto, 28, 4 years and 9 months with the Department, were involved in the beanbag shooting.

No officers were injured.
