LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Police Department released video Thursday of an officer-involved shooting that happened last month in South Los Angeles.
The shooting took place on June 1 around 9:29 p.m. According to the LAPD, two plain-clothes narcotics officers in an unmarked sedan were patrolling the area when they drove through a gas station lot near 22nd Street and Vermont Avenue.
"The officers observed three individuals standing next to a vehicle parked near a gas pump," said LAPD Captain Gisselle Espinoza. "As the officers drove through the Chevron parking lot, they heard the sound of a slide to a firearm being racked, and then observed one of the suspects' point a gun at their vehicle. The officers drove out of the gas station parking lot and requested backup."
Moments later, additional officers arrived in an unmarked van. The video shows a window shatter, as the van carrying plain-clothes narcotics officers comes under fire at the gas station. The officers jumped out of the van and returned fire.
The LAPD said that one suspect was hit and treated for non-life-threatening wounds. The two other individuals surrendered.
One officer was treated for a graze wound.
Two loaded handguns were recovered at the scene, according to the LAPD.
Daizon Blue, 20, and Mosiq Jones, 18, were both booked on attempted murder. The third individual was not arrested and was released.
The investigation is ongoing.
