L.A. County Deputies Kill Three Armed Suspects in Weekend Incidents
September 21, 2009
Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies shot and killed three armed suspects in separate incidents over the weekend, bringing the total number of fatal deputy-involved shootings so far this year to 13.
A deputy was injured during a gun battle in one of the three shootings, and suspects' firearms were recovered after each incident, said Steve Whitmore, a department spokesman.
There were five fatal shootings by sheriff's deputies in 2008, Whitmore said.
The recent spate of shootings comes less than a week after Sheriff Lee Baca called for an expedited investigation into a deputy's fatal shooting of an unarmed man in Athens on Sept. 14. Baca said later that he would convene a panel of experts to examine deputy- involved shootings.
