Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Department’s (LAPD) Force Investigation Division is investigating an Officer-Involved Shooting (OIS) in Southeast Division.
On September 17, 2022, around 1:20 p.m., Southeast Division patrol officers responded to a radio call of a family dispute at a residence in the 400 block of West 102nd Street. As the officers approached the residence, a man, later identified as 19-year-old Luis Herrera, came out the front door holding what appeared to be a black rifle. The officers gave Herrera commands to drop the rifle, however, Herrera did not comply. Herrera shouldered the rifle and pointed it at the officers, resulting in an OIS. Herrera was struck by gunfire and fell to the ground.
Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics arrived and pronounced Herrera deceased.
No officers or bystanders were injured during this incident.
It was later determined the rifle Herrera was holding during the OIS was an airsoft gun.
LAPD’s specialized Force Investigation Division responded to the scene and are investigating this Officer-Involved Shooting.
The complete investigation will be reviewed by the Chief of Police, the Board of Police Commissioners, and the Office of the Inspector General to determine the thoroughness and accuracy of the investigation and whether the use of deadly force complied with LAPD’s policies and procedures. Representatives from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office and the Office of the Inspector General responded to the scene. In addition, investigators from the State of California Department of Justice, Office of the Attorney General, responded to complete their investigation.
