You know it’s going to be a good dance battle when the first move out of the gate is the robot...Who won? It’s hard for us to be impartial, so we’ll just say those who saw it in person at today’s #MLKDay Parade 🎥 credit @bootlegkev
This pup found himself in the middle of quite a situation — a standoff between his owner, wanted for several crimes, and LAPD SWAT. Before surrendering, the suspect had one request...for his dog to be taken care of. Police work can be complex, but heart is one of our best tools.
LAPD Officer-Involved Shooting in Culver City **The following information is based on a preliminary and ongoing investigation, which continues to evolve as investigators interview witnesses, review physical and electronic records, and analyze forensic evidence. The Department’s understanding of the facts and circumstances may change as additional evidence is collected and analyzed** Culver City: Los Angeles Police Department’s (LAPD) Force Investigation Division is investigating an Officer-Involved Shooting (OIS) that occurred early Saturday afternoon. On January 11, 2020, around 12:40 p.m., radio calls were generated by citizens reporting a “Man with a Gun” in the area of South Sepulveda Boulevard and South Venice Boulevard, an intersection that acts as the border between the City of Los Angeles (Pacific Area) and Culver City. A field supervisor assigned to Pacific Patrol Division was in the area and responded east on South Venice Boulevard toward the location. Upon arrival, the supervisor observed the suspect on the south sidewalk of South Venice Boulevard at Tuller Avenue. The supervisor stopped his police vehicle, exited and immediately observed the suspect pointing what he believed to be a handgun at him. A nearby witness also observed the suspect and believed the item in his hand was a gun as well. An OIS occurred and the suspect was struck by gunfire. He fell to the ground and was then taken into custody without further incident. The suspect was treated at scene by the Los Angeles Fire Department Paramedics and was then transported by Culver City Fire Department Paramedics to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. A bicycle part was located in the suspect’s hand and was recovered as evidence. No officers or innocent bystanders were injured during this incident.
