Los Angeles:  On July 30, 2014 around 6:30 p.m., Topanga Area Patrol officers responded to the 9100 block of DeSoto Avenue for a shooting call.  

An off-duty FBI agent observed what appeared to be a kidnap in progress when an armed suspect forced a victim into his vehicle.  The FBI agent identified himself and an agent involved shooting occurred.  The suspect then fled the scene in his vehicle with the Victim.  
 
The victim was released in the Topanga area and the suspect continued to flee to the area of Woodlake Avenue and Ventura Boulevard.  California Highway Patrol officers engaged the suspect and another officer involved shooting occurred.  

The suspect fled northbound on the 101 freeway at which point Los Angeles police officers located the suspect and initiated a vehicle pursuit.  The pursuit ended in the 24200 block of Pacific Coast Highway when the suspect exited his vehicle armed with a handgun.  When the suspect pointed the handgun in the officers’ direction, a third officer involved shooting occurred. The officer involved has been identified as Police Officer II Robert Del Papa, Serial No. 37526. The suspect fled on foot and was taken into custody.

The suspect was transported to a local hospital where he was treated for his injuries and released to be booked at Metropolitan Detention Center.  

No officers were injured during the incident.  

Force Investigation Division and Robbery Homicide Division detectives are investigating the officer involved shooting.

The investigation will ultimately be reviewed by the Chief of Police, 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.

Anyone with information is asked to call Force Investigation Division 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 Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers 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.
