VIDEO: LAPD Says Officer Stalking Video was Rap Promotion, Warrant Issued on Suspect

An arrest warrant was issued by the Los Angeles Police Department Tuesday for a suspect who was allegedly seen flashing a handgun while recording a Central Division officer exiting his police cruiser. The video was posted on social media and treated as a threat against officers.

In the video, the LAPD officer steps out of his black-and-white police cruiser, which is pulled over to the side of the road in an unknown area. The person shooting the video appears to be in a car parked behind him and flashes a revolver.

The department's robbery-homicide detectives say the unidentified officer belongs to the department's Central Division and that the three suspects, who were inside the vehicle when the video was recorded, have been identified.

"The investigation revealed that the film was made by members of an early 1990s rap group no longer in fashion. The film was made and posted on social media to ignite a comeback by the rap group," LAPD said in a press release on Tuesday.

Police have not released the name of the group or the names of the suspects, KABC TV reports.
