On September 23, 2019, around 6:25 p.m., uniformed officers assigned to Harbor Area responded to an ADW Shooting call inside a mobile home community at 1000 Figueroa.
Upon arrival, the officers encountered a naked male, later identified as David Hernandez, acting erratically.
As officers were giving D. Hernandez verbal commands, his father, Raymond Hernandez, exited a nearby trailer. R. Hernandez shielded his right hand behind his back and positioned himself behind D. Hernandez. R. Hernandez failed to comply with the officers verbal commands. While still shielding himself behind D. Hernandez, R. Hernandez produced a handgun from behind his back and pointed it in the direction of the officers, resulting in an Officer-Involved Shooting.
R. Hernandez was struck by gunfire and later pronounced dead at scene by Los Angeles Fire Department Firefighter/Paramedics. No officers were injured and a 9mm semiautomatic handgun was recovered at scene.
D. Hernandez was not struck by gunfire. He was taken into custody after a Non-Categorical Use of Force. The Medical Evaluation Unit was notified and D. Hernandez was placed on a 5150 hold.
