*UPDATE* #LASD Detectives Continuing to Investigate Deputy Involved Shooting 7100blk Pico Vista Road, Pico Rivera

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Homicide detectives are continuing their investigation into the circumstances surrounding a deputy involved shooting that occurred on Thursday, July 19, 2018, near the 7100 block of Pico Vista Road, Pico Rivera.
 
At approximately 1:37 A.M., deputies from Pico Rivera Sheriff’s Station were in the area of Washington Boulevard and Passons Boulevard, in the city of Pico Rivera.  Deputies attempted to conduct a traffic stop of a DUI suspect; however, the driver failed to yield and a vehicle pursuit ensued.
 
The pursuit terminated at Eglise Avenue and Bert Street when the suspect collided with a light post and an unoccupied parked vehicle. The suspect’s vehicle was disabled and he fled on foot armed with a handgun, southbound on Eglise Avenue to eastbound Schooling Road, at which time a deputy involved shooting occurred.
 
 
The suspect continued to flee on foot eastbound through several backyards of the neighborhood. The suspect was located on the 7100 block of Pico Vista Road, where a second deputy involved shooting occurred.
 
The suspect suffered at least one gunshot wound to the upper body and was pronounced dead at the scene.
 
There were no deputies injured and a handgun was recovered. 
 
The identity of the male Hispanic adult is not being released at this time pending a next of kin notification.
 
The investigation is still on-going.
 
Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500. If you prefer to provide information anonymously, you may call "Crime Stoppers" by dialing (800) 222-TIPS (8477), use your smartphone by downloading the “P3 Tips” Mobile APP on Google play or the Apple App Store or by using the website http://lacrimestoppers.org
 
Whenever a deputy-involved shooting occurs involving Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies, and a person is struck by gunfire, multiple independent investigations immediately begin at the scene.  These include separate investigations by the Sheriff's Homicide Bureau and Internal Affairs Bureau.  The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department immediately notifies the Office of the Inspector General who sends a representative to the incident scene and provides independent oversight throughout the investigative process.  Once concluded, a preliminary review is conducted by the Critical Incident Review Panel to determine whether any immediate actions are warranted.  Every aspect of the shooting is reviewed by the Sheriff's Executive Force Review Committee.  Input from Constitutional Policing Advisors is provided during the process.  The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, Justice System Integrity Division, conducts a legal analysis to determine whether any criminal charges will be filed and if the shooting was legally justified.
