Mayor Riordan Comments on Officer Brown's Slaying

LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPARTMENT
PRESS RELEASE
Monday, November 30, 1998


Mayor Riordan offered the following comment today upon learning of the slaying of LAPD Officer Brian Brown.

"This is a sad day in the City of Los Angeles. A young, brave officer in the prime of his life was senselessly gunned down while doing what he loved: protecting and serving his community. Officer Brian Brown was killed in cold blood by a criminal with no regard for others. Fortunately, this hoodlum will never terrorize other innocent people again.

"I commend Police Chief Bernard Parks and the officers of the Los Angeles Police Department who were involved in this incident for their professionalism in apprehending the other suspect in this case and for ensuring the public's safety as the episode unfurled. As the investigation continues, it is my hope that the suspect in custody will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

"As Officer Brown's father and son mourn his tragic passing, I ask all city residents to join me in keeping them in our thoughts and prayers. In Officer Brian Brown's honor, I have called for all City flags to be flown at half mast."
