Violent Suspect Shoots Multiple Rounds from Handgun, Slashes one Person with a Knife NR10557kr

Los Angeles:  A suspect was subdued by Rampart Area police officers who were responding to a call for help after the suspect went on a violent rampage, firing numerous rounds from a handgun and slashing the face of one victim.  

On November 23, 2010, at around 2:10 p.m., Rampart Area Officer John Hendrix, an eight-year  three-month veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department, and his partner, encountered the suspect of an “Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Shots Fired,” radio call at Temple Street and Union Avenue. As Officer Hendrix and his partner were driving to the call they spotted the suspect, later identified as 38-year-old Shannon Hayes, a male Black from Los Angeles, walking westbound on Temple Street at Bonnie Brae.  When the officers got out of their police car to make contact with Hayes, he displayed a handgun and an officer involved shooting (OIS) occurred.

Hayes was shot once in the head and immediately taken into custody. He was transported to a local hospital where he remains in critical condition. He was later booked for Attempt Murder on a Police Officer and is being held in the jail ward of the hospital.

No officers were injured during the incident, and the victim of the cutting was treated and released from a local hospital.

A .9mm semi-automatic handgun was taken into custody at scene and is being held as evidence in the incident.

Force Investigation Division (FID) is responsible for the investigation of all OIS’s, and responded to the shooting scene.  FID Criminal Apprehension Team is working in coordination with Rampart Area Detectives to investigate the crimes Hayes committed prior to the OIS.
