Officer Involved Shooting with Armed Suspect


Los Angeles: On Tuesday, April 2, 2002, at approximately 10:00 p.m., Officer Heriberto Arangure, 29 years of age, 6 years and 11 months with the Department and Officer George Magallon, 24 years of age, 3 years 8 months with the Department, were northbound on Alvarado Street in their black and white police vehicle approaching Court Street when they observed 7 to 10 male Hispanics run westbound across Alvarado Street from the southeast corner of Alvarado Street and Court Street. As they were approaching the west side of Alvarado Street, Officer Arangure observed one of them carrying a sawed-off shotgun in his right hand. When the suspect ran onto the west sidewalk of Alvarado Street, he and another male separated from the group and started walking southbound on Alvarado Street. Officer Arangure stopped his vehicle facing in a northwesterly direction across Alvarado Street and he and Officer Magallon exited

As the officers approached the suspects on foot, the suspect with the shotgun turned and pointed it in the officers' direction. Officer Magallon drew his service weapon and took cover at the rear of the police vehicle as Officer Arangure drew his service weapon and engaged the suspect. Officer Arangure fired at the suspect and struck him on his left side. When the suspect fell to the ground, the second suspect retrieved the shotgun and ran from the location southbound on Alvarado Street. He was last seen running eastbound into the alley east of Alvarado Street north of Beverly Boulevard.

An extensive search was conducted for the second suspect for approximately three hours, but failed to locate the suspect.

The first suspect was transported to a local hospital and was listed in stable condition. He will be booked for Assault with Deadly Weapon on a Police Officer. His identity will not be available due to him being a juvenile.

Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department Critical Incident Investigation Division responded to the scene and assumed responsibility for the investigation.

The District Attorney's Office Roll-Out Team responded and will conduct an independent investigation.

This press release was prepared by Sergeant John Pasquariello, Acting Officer in Charge, Media Relations Section, 213-485-3586.
