Deputy-Involved Hit Shooting, Long Beach Blvd and Magnolia Ave, Lynwood #LASD Homicide Bureau

Date and Time of Occurrence: Saturday, December 12, 2015 at approximately 11:00 a.m.

Location: Long Beach Boulevard and Magnolia Avenue, Lynwood

Unit: Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department – Homicide Bureau Lieutenant Eduardo Hernandez


Sheriff’s Homicide detectives are responding to Long Beach Boulevard and Magnolia Avenue in the City of Lynwood, to investigate the circumstances surrounding a deputy-involved hit shooting. 

One male suspect was struck by gunfire.  He was pronounced dead at the scene. 

There is no additional information available at this time.

Whenever a Deputy-Involved Shooting results in a fatality of a person, several independent investigations immediately begin at the scene.  These include separate investigations by the L.A. County Coroner, in addition to Sheriff's Homicide Bureau and Internal Affairs Bureau.  The District Attorney also participates in the investigatory process.  The LASD immediately notifies the Office of Inspector General who responds and is also present at the incident scene. 

The Critical Incident Review panel convenes to perform a preliminary risk management analysis of the shooting.  This panel is comprised of the concerned chief and unit commander, risk management, training and the chairperson of the Executive Force Review Committee and Office of the Los Angeles County Counsel.

Every aspect of a Deputy-Involved shooting is ultimately evaluated by the Sheriff’s Executive Force Review Committee, which decides whether or not there are any policy, tactical, supervisory, or training violations. 

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500. If you prefer to provide information anonymously, you may call "Crime Stoppers" by dialing (800) 222-TIPS (8477), or texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or by using the website
