RIVERSIDE, CA — The Riverside Police Department released dashcam and body camera footage of an Officer Involved in a fatal Shooting that occurred in the 3600 block of Banbury Drive on December 6, 2023.
On Wednesday, December 6, 2023, around 1:48 a.m., Riverside Police in California encountered an incident when two patrolling officers on Banbury Drive observed a silver BMW sedan halted in front of the vehicle entrance gate to an apartment complex in the 3600 block.
Upon conducting a records check on the license plate, the officers discovered that the vehicle had recently been towed and stored due to the arrest of the driver, identified as 26-year-old Ryan Joseph Smith from San Bernardino. They promptly initiated an occupied vehicle check and informed dispatch of their actions.
Approaching the idling vehicle, the cover officer peered through the windshield and immediately spotted a gun on Ryan Smith’s lap. The cover officer drew his duty weapon and issued repeated commands for Smith to get his hand off the gun. At one point, Smith lifted his hand up but then put it back down on the gun. In response, the officer fired five shots at Smith.
As Smith exited his vehicle, his handgun fell to the ground beside him. Once he was separated from the weapon, both officers immediately initiated life-saving measures until paramedics arrived. Smith was subsequently transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased shortly afterward. It was later discovered that Ryan Smith was currently on probation in Los Angeles County for weapons violations.
A record check conducted that night revealed an active arrest warrant for a weapons offense in Los Angeles County and another warrant in Texas for possession of marijuana. Prior incidents included arrests by the Fontana Police Department in March 2023 for firearms violations, another arrest in November for an outstanding warrant, and an arrest by the Riverside Police Department in October for a warrant.
He was also found to be associated with a criminal street gang out of Fontana, and his tattoos and social media corroborated his gang affiliation.
The firearm in Smith’s possession during the incident was identified as a 40-caliber Glock handgun equipped with a high-capacity magazine loaded with 25 rounds. A ballistic examination and testing of Smith’s gun confirmed that it had been modified to function as a fully automatic weapon.
