LAPD Investigates Officer Involved Shooting of Armed Robbery Suspect NR11032kr

Los Angeles:   On January 18, 2011, just after midnight, an attempted armed robbery occurred near the intersection of Topanga Canyon Boulevard and Roscoe Boulevard.  The victims of that robbery immediately called police and officers from the Los Angeles Police Department’s Topanga Area responded.  The victims provided the officers with a description of the robbery suspect.

As the officers were searching the area they saw a male Hispanic in the 22100 block of Roscoe Boulevard that matched the description.  When the officers made contact with the suspect in an effort to detain him, the suspect did not comply with their commands and instead led them on a short foot pursuit. 

During the chase, the suspect pointed a small caliber handgun at the officers and an officer involved shooting occurred.  The suspect was struck several times.  The officers immediately called for medical assistance.  LAFD personnel responded and the suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.

Neither the victims of the attempt robbery nor the officers were injured during the incident. A small caliber semi-automatic handgun was recovered at the scene.

Force Investigation Division personnel responded and are conducting the investigation into 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 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.
