Officer-Involved Shooting in 77th Division NR12431ne

September 17, 2012

Updated:  The Officers involved in this incident have been identified as Police Officer II Andrew Green and Police Officer II Brittany Borja.


Los Angeles:
  Los Angeles Police Department 77th Street Area patrol officers were involved in an officer-involved shooting when they observed the suspect pointing a gun at the victim.

On September 3, 2012 around 10:45 p.m., officers were in patrol in the area of Denver and Florence Avenues when they heard multiple shots in the area and a large group of people (approximately 300) running in every direction from the scene of the party.  The officers stopped their vehicle and observed a male suspect pointing a gun at an unknown person.  The officers believed that the suspect was going to execute the victim so they exited their patrol car and an officer involved shooting occurred.  The suspect ran eastbound Florence Avenue and northbound Denver Avenue.

A perimeter was established and an extensive search was conducted.  The suspect was not found with-in the perimeter.  The suspect has not been identified.  A victim suffered a minor gunshot wound during the party prior to the officers’ arrival and was treated and released.

LAPD’s Force Investigation Division (FID) responded and will be handling the investigation of the officer-involved shooting.  The shooting that occurred during the party is being investigated by 77th Street Area Detectives.  It was also determined during the investigation that there was no crime committed against the officers.

The investigation will ultimately be reviewed by the Chief of Police, the 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.
