  • LAPD shooting, October 13, 2020

    Los Angeles, California — On October 13, 2021, around 5:50 a.m., LAPD Pacific Patrol Division officers responded to calls reporting the suspect, later identified as 36-year-old Carlos Arias, threatening a female family member with a knife. As officers approached the apartment where Arias and the woman were, they heard a woman yelling in distress. Fearing for the safety of the woman, they forced entry into the apartment. Inside the apartment they saw Arias armed with a knife, swinging it at the woman; at that time there was an Officer-Involved Shooting. Arias was struck by gunfire and transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased. The knife Arias was armed with was recovered at scene. The woman, later identified as Arias’ mother, was not injured an no officers were injured during the incident.

    Good shoot. Excellent control and communication. But when you are going to make entry, you have got to have tools. Booting the door may not always work, and you are just telegraphing your moves with each hit. When you make entry, a halligan, sledge hammer in the right hands gets you in pretty fast.
