    LBPD Locates Suspect in Previous Murder (Virginia Ct.) Believed Armed and Dangerous In Area Temple/Anaheim; Major All Night Search Finds Armed Suspect; He's Shot & Killed

    (July 13, 2004, updated text) -- A LB neighborhood in the area of Anaheim St. and Temple Ave. was virtually locked down overnight (July 12-13) after LBPD Detectives received information on the possible location of a suspect in a previous murder (June 6 stabbing of woman 700 block Virginia Ct.).

    In a written release, LBPD says it responded to a multi-unit residence in the 1100 block of Temple Ave...and "when the suspect became aware of the officers' presence, he fled form the location on foot."

    A perimeter was established from Anaheim St. to 11th St. and from Temple to Molina Aves. "Due to the murder suspect being considered armed and dangerous, the SWAT team was called in to assist in the search," the release says.

    LBPD Public Information Officer Sgt David Cannan said it was "a very vigilant search"...and an reader who lives in the area emailed that a police helicopter circled for several hours. "I saw fire trucks, the SWAT van, multiple black and whites, other emergency vehicles, the helicopter," our reader reported.

    LBPD successfully found the murder suspect at about 4 a.m., inside an apartment that didn't belong to him in the area of the 1100 block of Ohio Ave. The release said:

    "Officers discovered what appeared to be signs of forced entry to a unit within the complex that was known to be occupied by a family with children. Fearing that the suspect may have forced his way into the residence and may be holding the family members as hostages, SWAT officers entered the apartment. While searching for the family members, they located and confronted the armed suspect who was hiding under a bed, and [an] officer involved shooting occurred...[in which] the suspect received a fatal injury."

    The LA County Coroner will positively identify the suspect and determine the actual cause of death. A SWAT officer sustained a minor injury during the incident and was treated at the scene.
