Bodycam Footage Of A Police Shootout In Los Angeles, California

The Silver Lake Trader Joe’s store manager who was killed in a shootout between a standoff suspect and LAPD was fatally shot by police gunfire, police confirmed on Tuesday. LAPD Chief Michel Moore confirmed at a news conference that Melyda Marciela Corado, 27, was struck by gunfire from officers during the shootout. The situation unfolded Saturday afternoon with a family dispute in South Los Angeles, where the suspect, Gene Evin Atkins, allegedly shot his grandmother and fled in a car, taking with him a 17-year-old girl who was grazed by a bullet. It’s believed the teen may be Atkins’ girlfriend. LAPD officers were able to track Atkins’ car using LoJack and tried to pull him over in Hollywood, but Atkins refused to pull over and fled from officers. During the chase, Atkins fired through the back window of his car at officers before he crashed into a pole right outside the Trader Joe’s store. During the morning news conference, LAPD released footage from the dashcam of the pursuing police car as well as video from the body worn cameras from both officers involved in the shootout.
