Officer-Involved Shooting (OIS) in Hollywood NR12562cj

UPDATE:
December 13, 2012


The officer involved in the below officer-involved shooting has been identified as
Police Officer II Adam Urena.

Los Angeles:
  On Thursday, December 6, 2012, around 8:30 a.m., LAPD Hollywood Area Patrol officers responded to a domestic violence radio call in the 1800 block of Whitley Avenue.  When the officers arrived they were met by a female victim in the lobby of the apartment building and noticed that she was bleeding.  She told the officers that her ex-boyfriend cut her with a knife and he was still inside her apartment.  Officers immediately went to the apartment and walked inside, where they saw the suspect holding a knife in his hand.  One of the officers ordered the suspect to drop the knife but the suspect refused.  The suspect lunged at the officers with the knife and an OIS occurred. The suspect was struck by officers’ gunfire and fell to the floor. Officers immediately requested paramedics for the suspect.

The Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics arrived on scene and pronounced the suspect dead.  The suspect was identified as 26-year-old Carlos Carrillo. The knife, with an approximate 4 inch blade, used by Carrillo was recovered at scene.  No officers were injured.

The Los Angeles Police Department Force Investigation Division (FID) responded to the incident and will be handling the investigation of the officer-involved shooting. 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.

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.
