Los Angeles, California — On August 20, 2022, at around 12:00 A.M., Harbor Patrol Division officers were in the area of West 18th Street and South Pacific Avenue, in San Pedro. They observed the suspect’s vehicle parked in a handicap parking spot in front of a liquor store located in the 1800 block of S. Pacific Avenue. Upon further investigation, officers observed four occupants (the suspect, another male, and two females) inside the vehicle.

Officers had the occupants exit the vehicle one at a time. The driver and a female were detained against a nearby wall of the liquor store. The suspect remained seated in the rear passenger side of the vehicle. Upon command, the suspect exited the vehicle. During a pat down search, a Glock handgun was located in the suspect’s front waistband. The officer promptly removed the firearm from the suspect’s waistband and handed it to his partner.

Officers requested backup. The firearm was secured in their police vehicle and the suspect was ordered to his knees. While waiting for backup, both officers re-deployed to the front passenger side of their police vehicle. The officers issued a verbal command for the suspect to move away from the passenger side of the car. The suspect failed to comply, and instead suddenly lunged into the rear passenger side of the vehicle, turned towards the officers and an Officer-Involved Shooting (OIS) occurred. The suspect was struck in his left hand.

He subsequently dropped a cellular phone and a wallet on the nearby sidewalk and was taken into custody. He was transported by rescue ambulance to a local hospital for treatment for his gunshot wound and is listed in stable condition. The suspect was later identified as 20-year-old Russell Douthit, a resident of Los Angeles. Douthit’s Glock Model 17 handgun was recovered at scene and was booked as evidence. Douthit was placed under arrest for 25400PC-Carrying a Concealed Weapon.

  1. Not to Monday morning quarterback but I don't think I understand why Russell wasn't immediately cuffed once the gun was felt or handed off. I get backing off since they are outnumbered, but cuff him while he's under control.

  2. Could have had a hundred pounds of fentanyl in the car, been a prohibited possessor with an arsenal, had one or more dead bodies in the trunk, and totally gotten away with their crimes if only they followed simple, basic laws.

  3. Fucking cops today are soo Fucking dumb they just stood their until something happened idiots I miss. 90's cops. They literally could of cuffed him but instead hid behind the door like a pussys

  4. Being that this is California this doesn’t apply. But for states where you can conceal carry legally without a permit ALWAYS tell officers you are carrying and tell them where the firearm is located. Then just follow instructions and don’t jolt

  5. 💯 the mentality of ghetto people is consistent from city to city. Blatant disobedience, and no regard for the law and despite thousands of examples of people being shot doing the same things that they do they do it anyway. 👍🏼
