Man with a Gun Prompts Police Response

Los Angeles:  A man with a gun led police on a foot pursuit into a yard with a dog that charged at the officers; leading to an officer involved shooting that resulted in the dog's death.

On Monday, March 30, 2009, at about 6:40 p.m., Newton Area Gang Officers responded to the area of 43rd Street and Ascot Avenue to investigate a 9-1-1 radio call of a man with a gun.  They found a suspect matching the description driving a car in the area.  Officers made an investigative stop on the car being driven by 27-year-old Rashad Isreal.

During the stop Isreal got out of the car and ran from the Officers, leading them on a foot pursuit.  As the Officer's were chasing Isreal he dropped a handgun.  Isreal continued running and ran into a yard where the Officer’s were met by a charging dog.  Officer Manuel Gomez, a 4-year veteran of the Department fired his handgun at the attacking dog, killing it.

Israel was later found and arrested for possessing a stolen handgun.  He is being held without bail.

Newton Division is handling the investigation.
