Off -Duty Officer Involved Shooting in Corona Statement & Video Release NR19259ml

Los Angeles: "The Department continues to express its deepest sympathies to the French family. Notwithstanding the Riverside District Attorney's decision, the LAPD's administrative investigation is on-going.

During the course of our investigation, we were provided a copy of the surveillance video capturing portions of the incident.

A court order barred the Department from releasing that video however, that stay order was lifted today and we are now able to release it to the public.



After the thorough investigation is complete, the Chief of Police will make a recommendation to the Board of Police Commissioners who will determine whether officer Sanchez's decision to use lethal force was within Department policy.
