Violent Man with Knives Result in an Officer-Involved Shooting NR13167cn

Los Angeles: On May 17, 2013, at 9:50 p.m., uniformed patrol officers from Rampart Area responded to a call about a violent man in the 500 block of N. Madison Avenue.  The caller indicated the suspect was violent and punched his mother in the face.  The caller also said he was brandishing a knife and “threatened suicide and his mother.”

Upon arrival, officers entered the location and were confronted by the suspect, later identified as Moises Palacios.  He was armed with two knives and uncooperative.  When ordered to drop the knives, he ignored the officers’ command and lunged at them holding the two knives.  An officer involved shooting then ensued, at which time Palacios was struck by gunfire and fell to the ground where he was taken into custody.

A Los Angeles Fire Department Ambulance responded and transported Palacios to a local hospital where he was treated and listed in critical but stable condition.  No officers were injured, and several knives were recovered from the scene.

Los Angeles Police Department Force Investigation Division (FID) responded to the incident and will be handling the investigation of the officer-involved shooting.

The investigation will ultimately be reviewed by the Chief of Police, Office of the Inspector General and the Board of Police Commissioners for compliance with the Department’s Use-of-Force policy which states that an officer’s use of force actions must be objectively reasonable.  Additionally, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Justice System Integrity Division will conduct a comprehensive review of the facts of the officer-involved shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call Force Investigation Division at (213) 486-5230. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247).  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.” Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
