Update: Press Conference to Announce Capture of Suspect


"Suspect Runs Over & Kills Security Guard"

 

Downtown: On Thursday, November 8, 2001 at approximately 3:55 p.m., a security guard employed at a complex located in the 100 block of West 17th Street in Los Angeles saw a tenant of the complex in a verbal dispute with an unidentified male Black suspect. The security guard went over to the parties and attempted to keep the peace.

During the course of events, the security guard discovered that the argument was over some property that the tenant claimed was taken, from a nearby loading dock, by the suspect. The security guard asked the suspect to return the property to the tenant. An argument then broke out between these individuals. The police were then called.

Knowing that the police had been summoned, the suspect attempted to flee the location in his vehicle prior to their arrival. As the suspect attempted to leave the scene, he accelerated his car and the left front fender struck the security guard knocking him to the ground. The suspect, continued his acceleration, ran over the security guard, causing massive internal injuries. The security guard was taken to a local hospital by responding emergency personnel. He died a short time later from the massive internal injuries he received as a result of being run over by the suspect's car. The security guard's identity is being withheld pending notification of his next of kin.

Anyone with information regarding this incident, is asked to call Detective Emmett Badar at Central Area Homicide Unit, 213-485-6593, or the Central Division Watch Commander at 213-485-3294.

This press release was prepared by Police Officer Guillermo Campos, Media Relations Section, 213-485-3586.
