Barricaded Suspect Points Gun at Officers; Officer-Involved Shooting Occurs NR13143df

Los Angeles:  A male suspect threatened police officers with a gun, resulting in an officer-involved shooting.

On April 29, 2013, around 2:40 p.m., LAPD Newton Area officers were driving by 47th Street and Broadway when they noticed a suspect in a Buick driving recklessly.  When the officers attempted to stop the vehicle, the suspect refused, and a pursuit was initiated.  During the pursuit, the suspect’s car collided with another vehicle, but the suspect continued driving.

The pursuit continued onto the southbound 110 freeway and ended up in the city of Carson.  The suspect drove to a residence on the 21500 block of Grace Street in Carson, which belonged to his girlfriend.  He ran into the residence, and a short time later, his girlfriend walked out of her home with an infant and went toward the nearby officers.

A perimeter was set up and the LAPD SWAT Team was summoned for assistance.  Before the team arrived, the suspect was observed holding a handgun.  The Crisis Negotiating Team made contact with the suspect, but he refused to turn himself into police.

Around 10:35 p.m., SWAT deployed gas into the house but the suspect still refused to exit and was seen moving around inside.

SWAT officers then deployed on a roof of an adjacent house when they noticed the suspect moving around through an open window.  At that point, he displayed a gun, pointed it at the officers and the officer-involved shooting occurred.

A moment later, the suspect walked out of the house and surrendered to police, with minor injuries due to the gas deployment.

During the operation, an LAPD SWAT officer was injured and transported to a local hospital in stable condition.

The investigation will ultimately be reviewed by the Chief of Police, Office of the Inspector General, and the Board of Police Commissioners for compliance with the Department’s use-of-force policy, which states that an officer’s use-of-force actions must be objectively reasonable.  Additionally, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Justice System Integrity Division will conduct a comprehensive review of the facts of the officer-involved shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call LAPD Force Investigation Division at 213-486-5230. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247).  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.” Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
