Off -Duty Officer Involved Shooting in Corona Statement & Video Release NR19259ml

September 25, 2019

Los Angeles: “The Department
continues to express its deepest sympathies to the French family.
Notwithstanding the Riverside District Attorney’s decision, the
LAPD’s administrative investigation is on-going.

During the course of our investigation, we were provided a copy of
the surveillance video capturing portions of the incident.

A court order barred the Department from releasing that video
however, that stay order was lifted today and we are now able to
release it to the public.

After the thorough investigation is complete, the Chief of Police
will make a recommendation to the Board of Police Commissioners who
will determine whether officer Sanchez’s decision to use lethal
force was within Department policy.
