LAPD Southeast Area Officer-Involved Shooting NR11131cn

UPDATE
March 31, 2011

The officer who fired his weapon in the incident below has been identified.  He is Police Officer II Carlos Lozano; he has been an officer in the Department for nine years and 11 months.


Los Angeles:
On March 24, 2011, at around 11:20 pm, LAPD officers working patrol in the Southeast Area saw suspect Akil Francis walking at 95th Street and Maie Avenue.  As the officers walked toward Francis, he spontaneously ran away from the officers and a foot pursuit occurred.        

The officers followed Francis to the rear alley west of Grandee Avenue.   During the foot pursuit the suspect pointed a stainless steel revolver at one of the officers, at which time an officer-involved shooting (OIS) occurred.  The suspect dropped the revolver and jumped over a fence to the rear of a residence located in the 9500 block of Grandee Avenue and ran away, but was later taken into custody without incident when he surrendered to officers just prior to a K-9 search.  

A loaded stainless steel revolver handgun was recovered at the OIS scene.  Akil Francis, is a documented gang member.   Neither the officers or suspect were injured.  

LAPD Force Investigation Division (FID) responded and is investigating the officer-involved shooting.  The FID Criminal Apprehension Team is coordinating the criminal prosecution of the suspect.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to call FID Detective Robert Solarza at 213-486-5230. 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.
