Officer Involved Shooting in Southwest NR12470ne

Los Angeles:  Los Angeles Police Southwest patrol officers responded to a “Fire Department requesting a backup, 415 Man with a knife” call that resulted in an officer involved shooting.

On October 6, 2012 at around 9:30 a.m., Southwest Area patrol officers responded to the 2600 block of Manhattan Place for a Fire Department back-up call.  When the officers arrived they were met by Fire Department personnel who informed them that a man in the apartment was holding a female at knifepoint.  Officers entered the apartment and saw the female on the kitchen floor and the suspect, later identified as 64-year-old Wilfredo Fu holing a knife in his hand.  The suspect was ordered to drop the knife, but instead continued to advance on the female later identified as the suspect’s wife at which time the officer involved shooting occurred.

Los Angeles Fire Department Paramedics responded and transported the suspect to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

LAPD’s Force Investigation Division (FID) responded and will be handling the investigation of the officer-involved shooting and criminal investigation.

The investigation will ultimately be reviewed by the Chief of Police, the Office of the Inspector General and The 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.
