Fatal Hit and Run

Law Enforcement Related Injury at Laker’s Celebration NR20284wc

Los Angeles: In anticipation of celebratory activity following the conclusion of the NBA Finals, several Mobile Field Forces were deployed in the downtown area.

On Monday, October 12, 2020, around 12:30 a.m., a squad of officers arrived in the area of South Flower Street and West 9th Street due to a large crowd. While interacting with that group, officers reported seeing individuals throw bottles in their direction. In response to those actions, less-lethal munitions were deployed, which struck an individual in the face. That person was subsequently transported to a local hospital, where he was admitted due to injuries sustained to his mouth. He was not arrested.

No officers were injured during this incident.

Force Investigation Division detectives responded to the scene and are investigating this incident.
