Armed Barricaded Suspect Taken Into Custody

Los Angeles: An armed man barricaded himself inside a strangers' home after an officer involved shooting in south Los Angeles.

On October 20, 2006, around 5:16 p.m., 77th Street officer Andrew Gonzales and his partner Ruben Cardenas, were patrolling in the area of 53rd Street and Vermont Avenue. The officers saw a man later identified as 23-year-old Tywan Johnson, standing in the street, leaning into a parked car.

As the officers drove near Johnson, he ran. Officers got out of their vehicle and chased Johnson. During the chase, he pointed a handgun at Officer Gonzales. Officer Gonzales fired at Johnson but missed.

Johnson continued to flee and barricaded himself inside an elderly woman's home in the 900 block of 54th Street.

After hours of negotiations with the Special Weapons and Tactics team (SWAT), Johnson finally surrendered and was taken into custody. The woman was unharmed.

Johnson was charged for assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer and unlawful imprisonment. His bail was set at $100,000.

Officers recovered a .38 caliber revolver handgun that was abandoned by Johnson during the foot pursuit.

The officers and Johnson were not injured.

Officer Gonzales, 31, has been with the Department for 6 years and 10 months. Officer Cardenas, 35, has been with the LAPD for 7 years and 8 months.

Force Investigation Division is handling.

Any questions can be directed to Media Relations Section at 213-485-3586.
