    Follow-Up To Accidental Discharge of Park Ranger's Duty Weapon Prompts Parks & Rec & LBPD Probes

    (Sept. 16, 2003) -- has followed up on a Sept. 11 accidental discharge of a Park Ranger's duty weapon in the area of the 3400 block of Golden Ave. Until the facts became clear, the incident triggered a no-nonsense police perimeter that effectively sealed the area from Pacific Ave. to the L.A. river and Wardlow Rd. to the 405 freeway on Sept. 11 from roughly 8:00 p.m.-1:00 a.m. has received emails from some impacted residents, angry over the disruption...especially after learning it apparently didn't result from some criminal shots fired but from an accidental weapon discharge.

    However, Ms. Srack indicated that when the investigation is completed, any material publicly releasable will be provided to

    Stay tuned.
