LAPD Release Sketch of Suspect in LAUSD Officer Shooting
This afternoon, the LAPD released a composite sketch of the suspect who is wanted for the attempted murder of LAUSD police officer Jeffrey Stenroos, who was shot outside the campus of El Camino Real High School yesterday. Despite a 9-hour lockdown and dragnet in the Woodland Hills area of the school, the suspect remains at large.Stenroos was shot by the suspect after confronting the suspect, who was seen peering suspiciously into parked vehicles on the street. The force of the bullet’s impact caused Officer Stenroos to fall to the ground, however his protective vest prevented the bullet wound from causing serious harm. A passing "good samaritan" saw Stenroos, and used his radio to call for help.
The suspect is still on the loose, and is now wanted for attempted murder. The suspect is described as a male Caucasian, in his mid-to-late 40s with long grayish hair pulled into a pony-tail, 5 feet 9 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, with a thin build. The suspect was last seen wearing a dark colored jacket, possibly a bomber jacket or hooded sweatshirt, and denim jeans.
Anyone with additional information is asked to contact the Los Angeles Police Department.
