Officer-Involved Shooting in West Valley NR12343ne

Update

The officer involved in the following officer involved shooting has been identified as Police Officer III Bruce Oakley, West Valley patrol.

Los Angeles:
  Los Angeles Police Department West Valley Patrol officers responding to a “Battery Investigation” were involved in an officer-involved shooting when a suspect produced a handgun and turned toward officers.

On July 19, 2012 around 4:45 a.m., West Valley officers were responding to a “Battery Investigation” in the 19300 block of Welby Way.  As officers arrived, they met with the person reporting the crime, who directed them to the suspect’s location in a locked bedroom inside the residence.  The officers made contact with the suspect, who opened the bedroom door, but quickly closed the door on the officers.  The officers forced entry into the bedroom.  The suspect produced a handgun and turned toward the officers and an officer-involved shooting occurred.  

The suspect, identified as 49-year-old Donald Warner, was struck by the gunfire.  Warner was taken in to custody and transported by Los Angeles Fire Department Paramedics to a local hospital for treatment.  No officers were injured.

A revolver was recovered at the scene.

LAPD’s Force Investigation Division (FID) Detectives responded and are investigating the officer-involved shooting.  The Criminal Apprehension Team is investigating the crime against the officer.
 
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.
