Officer Involved Shooting Investigation - 200 Block of Victoria Avenue

On May 9, 2019, at approximately 1:30 pm, Montebello Police Dispatch received a phone call of a disturbance in the area of 2nd Street and Victoria Avenue.  The reporting person told dispatchers the individuals were possibly drunk and possibly smoking marijuana.   

The first Montebello Officer to arrive on scene saw an individual walking with an apparent rifle on or near 2nd Street and Victoria Avenue.  The officer requested additional Montebello Officers to the area, at which time an officer involved shooting occurred.

The scene of the officer involved shooting will be blocked off for an undetermined time on Victoria Avenue between 1st Street and 3rd street.
