Van Nuys Traffic Stop Turns Deadly
UPDATE, 8:50 A.M.: One suspect has now been arrested and the LAPD says the man who was shot and killed last night by officers was apparently holding a camera tripod according to the LA Times.
This is all sounding eerily similar to last week's Glassell Park shooting. Last night before 7:00 p.m., a Van Nuys LAPD division unit stopped a car. Then things went wrong says the Daily News:
Two officers from the violent crime task force pulled over a 1997 Saturn near Kester Avenue and Valerio Street about 6:55 p.m, said Deputy Chief Michel Moore. "One of the passengers exited the vehicle and an officer-involved shooting occured," Moore said.
Following the shooting, the driver along with the remaining passengers, drove off. The car was later found. [Daily News]
