Oh No, Not Again Already! LAPD Shoots, Kills Black Man During ‘Investigative Stop’
Caution as always, early reports can be wrong. But damn this just hurts to see again.
The Los Angeles Police Department shot and killed a black man in South L.A. on Monday.
Police conducted an “investigative stop” in the Newton area around 8:20 p.m., according to a news release from the LAPD. “During the stop a struggle ensued, which resulted in an officer-involved-shooting. It is unknown if the suspect has any gang affiliations,” the release continues. “The suspect was transported to a local hospital and after lifesaving efforts he succumbed to his injuries.”
A woman claiming to be the deceased man’s mother called KTLA and identified the man as Ezell Ford. Tritobia Ford said her son was lying on the ground and complying with the officers when he was shot three times.
