Officer-Involved Shooting with Gunman

Los Angeles: LAPD officers shot and wounded a gunman on Wednesday evening, October 4, 2006, at around 8:45 p.m.

Seventy Seventh Area Gang Impact Team Officers Sean Kinchla and Robert Quiroz were on patrol in a marked police car in the area of 60th and Hoover Avenue. They heard a broadcast of a shooting call a couple of blocks away.

Shortly after, the officers saw a man matching the description of the suspect, later identified as Allen Darra, and stopped to investigate. When Darra saw the officers, he ran away from them, dropping a jacket that was concealing a handgun he was holding in his right hand.

The officers ordered Darra to stop and drop the gun. Darra did not obey the officers' commands and turned and pointed the gun in the officers' direction. Fearing for their safety, Officer Kinchla fired 2 rounds hitting Darra in the arm. Darra dropped the gun and continued running for a short distance before falling down. He was taken into custody without further incident.

Darra was transported to a local hospital and treated for his wounds. He was arrested for Assault with a Deadly Weapon on a police officer. Darra is 40 years old and he is a resident of Los Angeles.

Officer Kinchla, is 29 years old, with 6 years and 4 month on the Department. Officer Quiroz, is 33 years old with 9 years and 4 months on the Department

Investigations revealed that Darra was in-fact the person involved in the original shooting call. He had fired a shot at a woman who was sitting at a bus stop in the 5900 block of Vermont Avenue. Domestic violence may have been the motive for the shooting.

Force Investigation Division is conducting the investigation. For further information please contact Media Relations Section at 213-485-3586.
