    Phew! LBPD & Alert LB Transit Bus Driver Handle Situation Involving Man Believed Armed On Downtown Bus

    (June 5, 2005) -- Coordinated actions by an alert LB Transit bus driver and LBPD officers successfully handled an alarming situation that developed on Saturday night (June 4) in downtown LB

    LBPD Public Information Officer Israel Ramirez says that at about 7:22 p.m., Redondo Beach PD informed LBPD that a subject believed to have taken weapons from relatives might be on public transit. LBPD informed its beat cops and LB Transit...and about an hour later, an alert LB Transit driver spotted a man matching the subject's description on board a bus in downtown LB on Broadway not far from Pine Ave.

    The savvy LB Transit bus driver notified LBPD...and in a fast breaking series of events officers quietly converged on the area, set up a Command Post and moved to keep people out of potential harm, briefly closing parts of some streets at about 9:00 p.m.

    LBPD and the bus driver remained in communication, relaying important information back and forth...and about 20+ people got out off the bus without injuries.

    Next, LBPD had to deal with the fellow that another law enforcement agency had indicated might be armed. LBPD got into place and directed the subject to exit the bus. He did.

    It turns out he wasn't armed, but based on the totality of the circumstances the subject will likely be taken in for evaluation, PIO Ramirez indicated.

    As the situation returned to normal, Officer Ramirez reflected on what had taken place.

    "We had coordinated actions between LBPD and LB Transit and excellent observations from the the LB Transit driver. Things worked out well all around."
