Man shot to death by police to what appeared to be armed with a gun

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.
