Officer Involved Shooting with no Hits in West Los Angeles NR12272cj

June 29, 2012

Updated:
The officer involved in the following officer involved shooting has been identified as Police Officer II Christopher Cox, West LA patrol.

Los Angeles:
On June 11, 2012, around 8:41 p.m., West LA Patrol officers responded to a call of a man threatening to shoot himself in the 11400 Rochester Avenue.  When the officers arrived, they saw a man on the 3rd floor of the building and gave commands for the man to comply, but the he refused.

At around 9:50 p.m. the man stepped out onto the 3rd story balcony and fired a handgun at an LAPD helicopter, flying over the location, and an officer involved shooting ensued.  The suspect walked from the balcony into the apartment and then barricaded himself.

LAPD Metropolitan Division deployed tear gas and took the suspect into custody.  The suspect was identified as Sean Edward Tarrabe.  He was treated by medical personnel for an abrasion to his left leg and cleared and booked for Attempt Murder. No officers were injured.

A search warrant was served at suspect Tarrabe’s apartment where investigators recovered two .40 caliber pistols and live ammunition.

Force Investigation Division (FID) personnel responded and will conduct a thorough investigation of the officer involved shooting. The investigation is ongoing.

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 about this incident is urged 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.
