LAPD officer shoots, kills vandalism suspect in Lake Balboa neighborhood

A Los Angeles Police Department officer shot and killed a man who appeared to be using rocks to vandalize cars or houses in a Lake Balboa neighborhood, officials said Friday.

Police officers responded to the 6700 block of Hayvenhurst Avenue at 3:35 a.m. on calls of vandalism and disturbance. There, a man whose age was given as between 20 to 25 year old, appeared to have rocks or some other objects.

“When the officers initially arrived, they attempted to detain him,” said LAPD Sgt. Albert Gonzalez. “They attempted to use less lethal type options. It was after that the suspect did something to make it an officer-involved shooting.”

It was unclear what the suspect did or if he had a weapon, Gonzalez said. An internal investigation will determine if the man posed a danger to the officers who responded. The investigation also will include interviews with witnessing officers. No police officers were hurt. It was unclear how many shots were fired, Gonzalez said.

Neighbors told reporters earlier in the day that there may have been more than one suspect vandalizing cars in the area. But based on early reports, it appears there was one man involved, Gonzalez said.

“From our indications, it appears he was there by himself,” Gonzalez said.
