    Oops: Accidental Discharge of Park Ranger's Weapon Prompts LBPD Search in Wrigley Area.

    (Sept. 12, 2003) -- Some good news for Wrigley area residents: the reason for the SWAT team, helicopter, K-9 unit, perimeter and search 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. (Sept 12) was not due to gang violence or urban crime.

    LBPD has concluded that a gun shot heard in the area of the 3400 block of Golden Ave. was due to an accidental discharge of a Park Ranger's weapon.

    LB police responded on hearing on their radio that on-duty Park Rangers in the area reported someone had shot at them. Park Rangers -- who are part of the Dept. of Parks, Recreation and Marine and not LBPD -- patrol the area which is the site of a forthcoming park.

    LBPD later determined that the shot was the result of an accidental discharge from the duty weapon of one of the Park Rangers.

    As is standard procedure in cases of any accidental discharge of a weapon, LBPD is looking into the incident.

    The Dept. of Parks, Recreation and Marine is conducting its own internal investigation because Park Rangers are under the Dept. of Parks, Rec. & Marine, not the LB Police Dept.
