Suspect Points Gun at LAPD Officer During Search Warrant Service NR09421gb

Los Angeles:  A suspect who pointed a handgun at an LAPD officer during the service of a search warrant, resulted in an officer involved shooting.

On Saturday, August 22, 2009, at around 6:50 p.m., LAPD Southwest Area, Gang Enforcement Officers, working the Violent Crime Task Force, were serving a search warrant in the 4000 block of Nicolet Avenue.  Police Officer Mynerva Gramillo, seven years with the Department was covering the rear courtyard of the location in case  suspects tried to escape out the rear of the location.  As officers began to make entry, a male suspect began to climb out the bathroom window.  He then extended his arm through the bathroom window screen and pointed a gun at officer Gramillo at which time an officer involved shooting occurred.

The suspect immediately went back inside of the bathroom.  A short time later, he and other two adult suspects were arrested by the entry-team officers without further incident.

A loaded handgun was recovered inside the residence. No officers were injured during the incident and the suspect was not hit by gunfire.

The LAPD Force Investigation Division responded to the location and investigating the officer involved shooting. Questions may be directed to Media Relations Section at 213-485-3586.
