Arrest Made in Morning Road Rage Shooting
Los Angeles: The Los Angeles
Police Department’s Devonshire Detective Division Crimes Against
Persons are announcing the arrest of a suspect responsible for
shooting a man. Based on the suspect’s behavior in two previous
incidents, detectives have genuine concern that there may be
additional victims involving the same suspect.
On April 22, 2019, Devonshire Division held a news conference and
released surveillance video of the suspect’s vehicle and
description of the suspect. After viewing television coverage of
the news conference, an anonymous victim notified Devonshire
detectives and reported being the victim of separate road rage
incident. During this incident, the suspect brandished a firearm
during a road rage incident that occurred in northern Los Angeles
The victim took a photograph of the suspect vehicle and wrote down
the license plate. The suspect and vehicle description matched
those in the March 25th shooting, which provided valuable
investigative leads to detectives.
On April 26, 2019, the suspect was located by the FBI/LAPD Task
Force. An attempt to stop the suspect resulted in a high-speed
pursuit where the suspect eluded capture. The suspect was
ultimately located in the City of Las Vegas. The FBI SWAT Team made
contact with the suspect, identified as David Phouanesavath, and
ultimately convinced him to surrender.
Due to the suspect’s involvement in two road rage incidents, it is
possible that additional road rage incidents involving this suspect
and the brandishing of a firearm may have occurred. Anyone with
information about additional incidents involving this suspect is
urged to contact Devonshire Detective Division Crimes Against
Person’s Table at (818) 832-0609.
