Los Angeles, California — On May 12, 2023, around 11:00 p.m., Newton Area patrol officers pulled over a vehicle for a traffic violation on Central Avenue north of 74th Street within 77th area. As officers made contact with the driver, he was asked to exit the vehicle. As the driver exited the vehicle, he armed himself with a black, semi-automatic handgun. One of the officers attempted to restrain the driver, who attempted to escape the officer’s hold, lunging himself forward.

During the brief struggle the driver discharged his handgun and sustained a single self-inflicted gunshot wound to his neck and immediately fell to the ground. Officers moved the handgun away from the driver and handcuffed him. A Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) rescue ambulance responded to the scene and transported the driver to a local hospital, where he was subsequently pronounced deceased. A loaded, 9mm semi-automatic handgun, and a single spent 9mm casing were recovered at scene. The driver was later identified as 40-year-old Anton Byrd. No officers were injured during the incident.

  1. Come on again every body knows that BLM ✊🏿 community are innocent, no matter if they have guns or drugs, they are still innocent people , shame on this evidence!!!

  2. It's almost sad this guy was complying. He's obviously under the influence but he posed no harm to anyone untill the cops mentioned gun. It's now don't reach shots fired. Like sure I guess. It was caring, respectful untill…gun gun he even said sorry, he's stepping out and gun gun 🔫. Police need to be trained and paid and take more classes and training modules. I can become a cop in two years, it's that easy. Cops are oussies becuase the department and state won't put the money into military training for state officials to shooof AR-15 yet all their fire power, it's their execution time and stupid procedures that make sure after ur shot u die. Someone gotta grow some balls and pull some quick action crap like the movies. Be a hero save the guilty life and let court fuck it up.

  3. U people keep giving props to the officers. Funny how circumstances change and u flip 180. These cops where lucky af, I ain't. Celebrating crap. Someone goes to jail I gotta pay for it via taxes. Amazing how all these free bees think they have any say in shit when they can't just go work at mc Dickies. Oh wait. Resume ect. Bs. Americans nees jobs. Criminal record okay proove ur not a shit. Untill then. U gotta face the path u paved. It's nobody's fault but ur own….. Too many officers unload thier clip, they think survival but after 3 full seconds of bullets u sit there for 20 more… Police need to be military, cops are too kind because it's hard to be brutal and to the point. The cop that got relived of his duty for avoiding a traffic stop. No jail time tho??? Tf. Really? But Georgie Floydie raised the biggest lie for black Americans
    The media led u f+ on
    U believed it, now ur confused cuz their are no facts to deteur the bs that happens in your so called community. Perverted silent people raised wrong. Death is the answer to helplessness like this+++++the officer on intial stop was chill so chill, and it turned into that.

  4. omg yay he died! I love reading the description to find out these subhuman thugs didnt make it. I mean why else was he grabbing the gun while running but to use it on the officers as a last resort when he couldn't run anymore? subhuman thug doesn't belong in our society, and thankfully now he isn't
