    LBPD Officer-Involved Shooting Wounds Suspect, PCH @ Gaviota

    (April 15, 2005) -- An LBPD officer was involved in the shooting of a suspect shortly after midnight today (April 15).

    LBPD says in a written release that at approximately 12:52 a.m., the patrol officer was driving eastbound on PCH at Gaviota Avenue when he saw the suspect standing in the roadway with vehicle traffic having to swerve to avoid hitting him. The release continues:

    The officer stopped to contact the suspect when the suspect turned towards the officer with what appeared to be a gun in his hand. The suspect refused to comply with the officer’s commands to drop the gun and continued to advance on the officer. The suspect then attempted to move behind cover and began to point the gun at the officer. The officer, fearing for his safety, fired his weapon striking the suspect at least one time in the upper torso. The suspect was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

    A replica handgun was recovered at the scene and placed into evidence.

    LBPD says that after treatment for his injuries, the suspect, a 36 year-old LB resident, will be booked for exhibiting an imitation firearm in a threatening manner.
