Olympic Area GED Officers Wounded in Officer Involved Shooting NR11455rh


                        UPDATE

The Officer involved in the below listed OIS has been identified as Police Officer III Phillip Scallon, Serial No. 35240 twelve years eight months with the Department.

Los Angeles:
Los Angeles Police Department’s Robbery Homicide Division arrested two subjects in the attempted murder of two Los Angeles Police Officers.

On October 1, 2011, at around 9:15 p.m., two officers assigned to Olympic Area were seated in a parked unmarked police vehicle conducting narcotic enforcement in the 2900 block of Leeward Avenue.  Several persons approached the officers on foot.  One male pointed a shotgun at the officers.  Multiple shots were fired at the officers at which time an officer involved shooting occurred.

Both officers sustained injuries and were transported to a local hospital.  

Later the same night, at around 11 p.m., two juvenile subjects were arrested and booked for 602 WIC/ 664/187 P.C. (Attempted Murder on a Police Officer).  Both subjects were transported and booked into Eastlake Juvenile Detention Center.

Force Investigation Division (FID) and Robbery Homicide Division (RHD) responded and are investigating the OIS.

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 regarding this case is asked to call Robbery Homicide Division, Homicide Special Section, Detectives Michael Whelan or Luis Romero, at (213) 486-6890. 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.
