Suspect Arrested After Pointing Gun At Police Officer NR10335kr

Los Angeles:   David Brooks, 25, is under arrest after he led police on a foot pursuit and pointed a loaded handgun at them, prompting an officer involved shooting in which no one was hit.

On Tuesday, June 22, 2010, at around 7:20 p.m., Southeast Area Gang Enforcement Detail (GED) Officer Billy Lee, 4 years 9 months with the Department, and his partner, were working a crime suppression detail in the housing development near Avalon Boulevard and 88th Place.  

Officer Lee and his partner were driving when they saw Brooks walking in the 600 block of Caliburn Drive, and noticed that he was holding his waistband.  Both officers got out of their police vehicle and approached Brooks to conduct an investigation.

After the suspect ignored their commands to stop, he ran and attempted to enter a locked apartment unit.   The suspect then led officers in a foot pursuit through the housing development.  As Brooks turned the corner, Officer Lee saw him holding a semi-automatic handgun in his hand.  Officer Lee momentarily lost sight of Brooks as Brooks ran between two apartment buildings, but eventually caught up to him.  

Brooks pointed a handgun at Officer Lee, and an officer involved shooting occurred.  Brooks fell to the ground and was taken into custody without incident.  There were no injuries as a result of the gunfire.  A 9mm semi-automatic handgun was recovered next to Brooks.  

Brooks was booked for Assault with a Deadly Weapon on a Police Officer with a Firearm.  

Force Investigation Division responded and are investigating the officer involved shooting.       

Southeast Area Detectives will be investigating the crime against Officer Lee.
