Foot Pursuit in Cypress Park Results in Officer Involved Shooting

Los Angeles: On Feb. 29, 2008, at approximately 6:25 p.m., a Los Angeles Police Department officer became involved in an Officer Involved Shooting after a brief foot pursuit.

The incident began as uniformed officers from the Metropolitan Division were riding in an unmarked police vehicle to conduct gang-related crime suppression in the Cypress Park area of Los Angeles. Officer Mario Gallegos has 9 years with the Department; and Joshua Kniss, 11 years with the Department.

As the officers traveled on Loosemore Street toward Pleasant View Street, they saw suspects Carlos Edwin Arevalo and Moises Mora standing in the street behind a parked vehicle. After stopping near the vehicle to investigate, Arevalo ran southbound from the officers on the sidewalk. Eventually, Officer Jason Schwab, 10 years with the Department, chased Arevalo to the rear of 3411 Loosemore Street where an officer involved shooting occurred. Officers also retrieved a .45 caliber pistol.

Arevalo, who sustained multiple gunshot wounds, was treated at the scene and transported by Los Angeles Fire Department personnel to Los Angeles County USC Medical Center where he expired from his wounds.

No officers were injured in the incident, and Force Investigation Division personnel are investigating the OIS.
