***UPDATE***

The three Southeast Officers involved in this officer involved shooting are, Officer Jesus Garcia,  14-years 10-months with the Department, Officer John Tumino, 3-years 4-months with the Department, and Diana Danley, 4-years 11-months with the Department.

Armed Suspect Shot by Officers


Los Angeles:  On April 27, 2011, at around 7:30 p.m., Los Angeles Police Department officers working patrol in the Southeast Area responded to a “Shooting in Progress” radio call in the 10000 block of South Anzak Street in South Los Angeles.  When they arrived the officers met with witnesses who told the officers that the suspect, described as a female Black, armed with a handgun, had attempted to shoot her two grandchildren and her adult daughter.

The officers drove down the street toward the location of the suspect. The Officers took a position across from the suspect and told her to drop her gun.  The Officers then saw the suspect point her weapon at a neighbor across the street.  Three officers fired their weapons at the suspect, striking her multiple times in the upper torso.  The Officers immediately took the suspect, identified as, 56 year-old Brenda Williams of South Los Angeles, into custody and immediately called for medical assistance.

Personnel from the Los Angeles Fire Department responded and transported Williams, to a local area hospital where she died as a result of her injuries.

None of the suspects intended victims were injured as a result of the shooting and no officers were injured in the incident.  A loaded .22 cal semi-automatic handgun was recovered at the scene.  

LAPD Southeast detectives are handling the investigation into the initial Shooting in Progress call, and LAPD Force Investigation Division personnel are investigating the officer involved shooting.  The investigation will ultimately be reviewed by the Chief of Police, the Office of the Inspector General and 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.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to call Southeast Area Detectives at 213-972-7813. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247).  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
