Armed Veteran Shot In Head, Compliments Officers During Detainment?? (NSFW)

On November 12th, 2021, at approximately 8:20 a.m., officers were dispatched to the area of Los Coyotes Diagonal and Woodruff Avenue regarding an unknown trouble call, which resulted in an officer involved shooting.


The first arriving officers located a man inside of a parked vehicle on Los Coyotes Diagonal near Woodruff Avenue. The man was holding what appeared to be a firearm. Officers made several attempts to de-escalate the situation, as the suspect refused to put down the firearm. The suspect threatened to harm himself and then pointed the gun at officers, which resulted in one of the officers discharging their service weapon.


Officers immediately rendered aid until the Long Beach Fire Department arrived on the scene and transported the suspect to a local hospital for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the head and upper body. Leading up to this incident, Police Dispatch received several calls for service, stating a man was in the area waving around a knife and a gun.


The preliminary investigation revealed the firearm was a CO2-powered BB gun—which was recovered at the scene. All officers were equipped with body-worn cameras and the Department is in the process of reviewing the footage. The suspect's name has not been released, but has been identified as a 40-year-old man from Palmdale.
