Bodycam Shows LAPD Officers Shooting Suspect Armed With Knife

Los Angeles Police Department’s Force Investigation Division is investigating an officer-involved shooting when officers responded to a radio call involving an attempt murder suspect. On June 9, 2018, around 11:45 p.m., Hollenbeck Area police officers responded to a radio call of a stabbing in the 2400 block of Gates Street. When the officers arrived the victim of the stabbing was taken to a local hospital by a private vehicle. The suspect, 27-year-old Victor Arroyo, was inside the residence with family members. The officers were locked out of the residence but were able to see Arroyo armed with a knife in a physical struggle with his father. Once the officers were able to gain entry to the residence, they continued to tell Arroyo to drop the knife he was holding. A beanbag shotgun was used, but was ineffective. While still armed with the knife, Arroyo quickly moved in the direction of his father; at which time there was an officer-involved shooting. Arroyo was struck and taken by the Los Angeles Fire Department to a local hospital for medical treatment.
