Abdul Arian Will Be Buried Today
Funeral services will be held today for Abdul Arian, the 19-year-old who was shot and killed by police on the 101 Freeway last week, reports City News Service.
The shooting took place after Arian fled a traffic stop on Wednesday. During the chase he allegedly called 9-1-1 and told an operator he had a gun. After he was finally pulled over, police say that he took an "aggressive shooting stance," and they proceeded to fire about 90 rounds at him.
Arian was killed at the scene. It later turned out that suing the city for $120 million, saying that non-lethal force should have been used. They allege that the sum represents $1 million for every bullet fired at Arian.
Arian's funeral will be held at Pierce Brothers Valhalla in North Hollywood. His family is planning to hold a press conference at noon, before the services.
