Los Angeles Police Officers are Mourning the Loss of One of Their Own

Los Angeles: An LAPD officer was killed during a traffic investigation in the Los Feliz Area.

On October 22, 2006, at approximately 1:20 A.M., Northeast Area Officer Landon Dorris and his partner, Officer Marc Fujiwara, were investigating a minor traffic collision at Riverside Drive and Hyperion Avenue. Officer Dorris was in the street, when a car heading west on Riverside Drive struck him. The force of the impact caused Officer Dorris to hit another car that was waiting to turn left onto the Golden State Freeway onramp.

The driver of the car immediately stopped and was very distraught over the incident. The driver was questioned by police officers at the scene, and there was no evidence he was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The driver was not arrested or cited; however, the investigation is continuing.

Officer Dorris was transported to University of Southern California Medical Center in critical condition with major head trauma. Despite the efforts of the hospital emergency staff, Officer Dorris did not survive his injuries. “The men and women of the LAPD are deeply saddened by the loss of a fellow officer. Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Officer Dorris during this difficult time,” said Chief William Bratton.

Officer Dorris was 31-years-old and had been with the LAPD for 3 years and 4 months. Prior to joining the LAPD, Officer Dorris served 6 years with the California Highway Patrol as a motorcycle officer. He is survived by his mother, two sisters, fiancé and two sons, ages 3 and one-and-a-half.

Chief Bratton and members of the LAPD Command Staff responded to the scene of the accident and to the hospital. They met with family members and officers who gathered for Officer Dorris.

The last LAPD officer to be killed in the line of duty was 31-year-old Ricardo Lizarraga. He was shot and killed by a suspect on February 20, 2004.
