Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck responds to preliminary report on the December 13, 2013 Officer Involved Shooting

Los Angeles:  Today, Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck received a preliminary report on the on Friday, December 13, 2013, Officer Involved Shooting (OIS) near the intersection of Olympic Boulevard and Los Angeles Street.  

“After hearing the preliminary briefing, I am very concerned about the circumstances that led up to and resulted in this Officer Involved Shooting,” said LAPD Chief Charlie Beck.  “Because of those concerns I have directed that the three involved officers be assigned home pending the final results of the investigation. Determinations regarding training or possible disciplining of the involved officers will be made at that time.”

On December 13, 2013 at approximately 10:15 p.m., Newton Patrol Division uniformed officers were involved in a vehicle pursuit of a Chevrolet Corvette for reckless driving.  The vehicle pursuit terminated when the Corvette struck a vehicle in the intersection of Olympic Boulevard and Los Angeles Street.  When the suspect exited his vehicle, an officer-involved shooting (OIS) occurred.  No weapon was recovered.        
 
Los Angeles Fire Department responded and transported the suspect to California Hospital where he was pronounced dead.  There were two occupants of the vehicle struck by the suspect’s vehicle, one of which sustained serious injury.  There were no officers injured during the incident.

Force Investigation Division (FID) detectives are investigating the OIS.  Multi-disciplinary Collision Investigation Team (MCIT) detectives are investigating the traffic collision.   

The investigations will ultimately be reviewed by the Chief of Police. In addition, an independent review will be conducted by the Office of the Inspector General and 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.
