Police Officers Encounter Armed Juvenile

Los Angeles: Officers responding to a man with a gun radio call become involved in Officer Involved Shooting (OIS).

On Saturday May 17, 2008, at 7:20 p.m., Newton Area officers responded to a radio call of a “415 man with a gun” in the 100 block of West 45th Street.

Upon arrival, officers saw a suspect with a gun situated in his front waistband standing in front of 128 West 45th Street. After exiting the police vehicle, officer’s repeatedly ordered the suspect to place “his hands above his head.” Ignoring the officers’ commands, the suspect removed the gun from his waistband, which led to the officer involved shooting.

The suspect, a 17 year-old juvenile, sustained multiple gun shot wounds to his upper torso, and was transported to California Hospital where he died from his wounds.

Force Investigation Division responded to the scene and assumed responsibility for the Officer Involved Shooting. The suspect’s weapon, a toy replica of a semiautomatic handgun, was recovered on scene by investigators.

Officer Isaac Moreno, 7 years with the Department and Officer Abel Cepeida, 1 year with the Department were not injured.
