Off-Duty Officer Involved Shooting Occurs in South Los Angeles NR10302cj

Los Angeles: Last Friday in the early evening, an officer-involved-shooting occurred in the 1800 block of West 78th Street.

On June 4, 2010, at about 5:48 p.m., an off-duty South Traffic Division police officer was cleaning his car in the 1800 block of west 78th Street in 77th Area.  A white van which had at least two occupants approached the officer.  The driver exited the van, armed with a hand gun, walked up to the officer and asked for his gang affiliation.

The officer was able to arm himself and an exchange of gunfire ensued.  It appeared that the suspect was struck.  The suspect re-entered the van and drove away out of view.  The officer was not injured.

Several police units responded and area hospitals were notified of a possible injured suspect.  A wounded person was reported to have been dropped off at a hospital in the city of Inglewood.  Inglewood and LAPD personnel responded to the hospital.  

The van was located at the hospital and the individual who was wounded by the officer was identified as the suspect.  

Further investigation implicated two additional suspects.  Both were identified as having transported the wounded suspect to the hospital.  The suspect is in stable condition.

Force investigation Division (FID) responded and are handling the officer involved shooting.  FID Criminal Apprehension Team is investigating the crime against the officer.
