LAPD shoots a 19-year-old armed with a gun

On May 26, 2019, around 7:38 p.m., officers assigned to West Valley Patrol Division responded to a radio call of a woman armed with a handgun in 8000 block Hesperia Avenue. Officers arrived and encountered a female Hispanic, later identified as Julie Fernandez, armed with a handgun, which she held pointed to her head. Officers tried to de-escalate the situation with Fernandez by verbalizing with her to drop the weapon but she refused. During the incident, Fernandez pointed the handgun in the direction of an officer and an Officer-Involved-Shooting occurred (OIS).

Fernandez was struck by gunfire and treated at scene by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics. She was then transported to a local hospital where she is currently listed in stable condition and expected to survive.
