LAPD officials say two officers were on patrol at about 11:30 p.m. at Lombardy Boulevard and Alhambra Avenue when a man standing on a corner shot at them.

The officers followed the shooter as he ran through an alley and returned his gunfire. The shooter was hit by the shots and taken to a hospital, where he died, police said.

“These things can happen,” LAPD Sgt. Barry Montgomery said. “These officers were not looking for anyone. Again, they were just on patrol in the area, and he fired upon them unprovoked.”

Neither officer was hurt in the shooting, although an LAPD cruiser was damaged.

The suspect was not identified, but he was described as a man in his 30s. Investigators say a gun was recovered at the scene, but they continue to look for a motive in the shooting.

Alhambra Avenue and Endicott Street remain were shut down for the investigation.

Van Plows Into LAPD Officer Conducting Traffic Stop.
LAPD Officer Mike Martinez had stopped a suspected stolen car at San Pedro and 62nd just after 10 p.m. Monday. He says it’s actually the second time in his law enforcement career he’s been hit by a car – the first time was by a drunk driver. “A van coming down the opposite direction either didn’t see me or didn’t care, he gunned it,” Martinez said. “Hit me and gave me a ride on his hood into the intersection. Didn’t want to stop.” Martinez says it’s not clear if the van intentionally hit a police officer, but it should have been clear to the driver that someone ended up on the hood of the van and slid off.
