#LASD *UPDATE* Homicide Det Asst. Alhambra PD w/Officer Involved Shooting Invest, 700 blk W Valley Bl, Alhambra

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Homicide detectives continue to assist Alhambra Police Department personnel investigate the circumstances surrounding an Officer-Involved shooting that occurred on Saturday, November 18, 2017.
 
Investigators have learned that at approximately 12:01 A.M., a carjacking occurred on the 100 block of East Beacon Street in the city of Alhambra.  The carjacking suspect had simulated a handgun and stole the victim’s white compact vehicle. 
 
Shortly thereafter, at approximately 12:23 A.M., officers received a call to the 700 block of West Valley Boulevard in Alhambra, where a male driving a white sedan was ramming vehicles in the parking lot.  Upon the officer’s arrival into the parking lot, the suspect attempted to strike the officers with the white sedan.  The suspect accelerated the white sedan and drove directly at the arriving officers, at which time an officer-involved shooting occurred. 
 
The suspect, a 29 year-old male Hispanic, was struck one time in the torso.  He was transported to a local hospital where he was treated.  He is expected to survive.
 
Investigators confirmed that the officer-involved shooting suspect was the same suspect involved in the carjacking and that the white sedan he used to attempt to strike arriving officers was the same vehicle stolen during the carjacking.
 
The victim of the carjacking, a female adult, was not injured.
 
It is unknown if the incident is gang-related.
 
The identity of the suspect is not being released at this time. The investigation is ongoing and there is no additional information available at this time.
