DIS Leaves 17-Year-Old Burglary Suspect Seriously Wounded

LYNWOOD (CBS)  — Authorities say a deputy-involved shooting in Lynwood left a 17-year-old male suspected burglar seriously wounded.

The shooting occurred about 9:45 a.m. in the 4100 block of Abbot Road, said Deputy Robert Boese of the Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau.

No deputies were injured.

Deputies from the Century Station had responded to a burglary in progress call. A woman said she was in her house when the suspect knocked on her front door, said Deputy Lillian Peck.

The victim did not answer the door but saw him walk south and across Abbot Road to a car with two additional suspects inside.

He got into the car and they drove away, north on Dorothy Street, out of
view.

Shortly after, the victim saw the suspect who had knocked on her door jump over her rear wall and go into her backyard. She ran to a neighbor’s home and called for help.

When deputies arrived, they reportedly saw the suspect jumping out of a window.

The suspect went into the front of a fenced-in yard of a nearby home where he was confronted by deputies who were on the outside of the fence.

He jumped over the rear fence and was confronted by a deputy. The deputy ordered the suspect at gunpoint to stop and raise his hand. Instead the suspect turned to face the deputy and put his hand inside of his left front pants pocket. The deputy fired his weapon.

A weapon was not found on the suspect.

Anyone with knowledge of this case was asked to call the sheriff’s Homicide Bureauat (323) 890-5500.

    The cop’s version is always the same when they try and justify why they shot a suspect.
    “The deputy ordered the suspect at gunpoint to stop and raise his hand. Instead the suspect turned to face the deputy and put his hand inside of his left front pants pocket. The deputy fired his weapon.”
    Most people would not be stupid enough to dig in their pocket pretending to have a gun or point a gun at a cop, especially when the cop already has his or her gun raised and ready to shoot, and yet that is always the explanation a cop will give. That version sounds suspect to me. I agree that the suspect should be arrested, but probably not shot.

      The idiot “voice of reason” should shut the f#%k up. The guy premeditated, broke into to someone’s home so he deserves whatever he got! That’s it. Maybe you should try to contact the thief and console him you idiot!

    thats the excuse there train to say in order to don’t get convicted.

      Did you mean to say, “That’s the excuse they’re trained to say in order to not be convicted?”

    Well, for “Voice of Reason” above: you answered your own question – “Most people would not be stupid enough to dig in their pocket pretending to have a gun….”

    MOST people are not stupid enough to be burglars either, so it is highly likely that a person stupid enough to be a burglar is ALSO just stupid enough to dig in their pocket pretending to have a gun while at gunpoint – or simply not follow simple directions “to stop and raise his hand” while even at gunpoint. Such a person may be stoned or on meth as well, and BE just stupid enough for that reason alone. THAT version sounds (LIKE THE) suspect to me.

    1. Steve says:

      Absolutely right. What they seem to do after they know they are about to be caught is to reach for whatever they stole (cash, jewelry, credit cards, etc.) and try to discard it, thinking if the goods aren’t on them, they can’t charge them for it. It is still a judgement call, and I would hate to be the one to make that call. But then again, how does the deputy know what he is reaching for? I also say the LASD did a great job.

    Great job LASD!

      Sorry that alleged suspect is only wounded

    Hey TD – let’s hope you’re next in their sights! If they’re the trash, your that noxious pungent acrid-smelling olive-drab liquid that oozes out of the trash truck. If you die in the line of anything, say getting decapitated in a horrible car accident,, or you simply have a heart-attack while walking to the grocery store – I’ll rejoice.

    Score one for the good guys!

  7. Voice of Reason says:

    Gee Hank, are you a stupid, uneducated, self-glorified cop defending the repeated and rehearsed version of one of his own? I worked in law enforcement for five year and I happen to know what goes on behind closed doors at the police station, so I guess you’re the idiot who knows nothing. Unless of course, you are a cop and feel offended by the truth.

    Don’t do the crime if you don’t want to get shot by the cops idiot!!!
