Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Department’s (LAPD) Force Investigation Division is investigating an Officer-Involved-Shooting (OIS) that occurred early Wednesday afternoon, in a North Hollywood residential community.

On May 27, 2020, around 11:35 a.m., LAPD, uniformed patrol officers, assigned to North Hollywood Division, responded to a “Neighbor Dispute” radio call for service, at the 6400 block of Elmer Avenue. Upon arrival the officers spoke with the reporting persons and then attempted to make contact with the suspect (later identified as 50-year-old, Rommel Mendoza), who had returned to his residence on Elmer Avenue. As the officers approached Mendoza’s rear residence, he became verbally aggressive, and was screaming at the officers from inside the home. Mendoza then suddenly exited the residence, with a wide bladed sword, as he ordered the officers to shoot him and then aggressively moved towards the officers, causing them to redeploy to increase distance and safety between them and Mendoza. The officers returned onto the street, made a radio request for “help” and took cover behind vehicles as Mendoza followed them, while still armed with the sword. As additional units responded, the officers continued to order Mendoza to drop the sword. Mendoza failed to comply and returned to his property.

Upon the arrival of sufficient units, a tactical plan was put in motion, which included designated officers with less lethal munitions, a communications officer and the assistance from a LAPD air unit. At approximately 12:15 p.m., Mendoza returned to the street, while still armed with the sword. Despite the numerous commands, Mendoza refused to surrender and began to advance towards the officers, which precipitated in the discharge of a 40mm less-lethal launcher and an OIS.

Mendoza was struck by gun fire and fell to the ground, where he was taken into custody without further incident.

The Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to the scene and rendered aide, but Mendoza died and was pronounced deceased. The Los Angeles County Corner’s Officer positively identified Mendoza and made the appropriate death notifications to his next of kin.

A large sword weapon was located at scene and recovered as evidence. Fortunately, no officers or innocent bystanders were injured during this incident.

LAPD’s specialized Force Investigation Division (FID) responded to the scene and began interviewing witnesses and collecting forensic evidence. A representative from the Office of the Inspector General responded and monitored the scene investigation.

The complete investigation will be reviewed by the Chief of Police and the Board of Police Commissioners and the Office of the Inspector General to determine the thoroughness and accuracy of the investigation and whether the use of deadly force complied with LAPD’s policies and procedures. Additionally, representatives from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office who responded to the scene will review the subsequent FID investigation; evidence collected and witness statements to determine if the force used by the officers(s) was reasonable.

  2. Cops retreat a city mile to stop from shooting a Asian man with a sword. Had he been Black the cops would have shot him 50 times for having a butter knife and sticking his head out the door to see what was going on. But of course someone will say this has nothing to do with race.

  3. I’m not a fan of telling police (or anyone) to take non-torso shots to disable an aggressor.
    But in this case, the whole thing unfolded relatively slowly, with the suspect vulnerable to accurate (rifle) fire for a long time.
    I see at least 2 police carbines in the video, and maybe 3.
    A leg or pelvis shot would have been easy, although I agree he was coming at the cops when he was shot. Someone definitely got a headshot in on him, as well as 1 or 2 in the chest.
    The guy was mentally ill, and probably could have been helped. (Probably)
    I’m not terribly sad it ended like it did (one less crazy violent person on the street), but it could have been handled differently.
    The police have a tough job, and I’m not criticizing. But there are tactical options that even our military employ in situations like this (depending on the support of locals-hostile territory and the bad guy dies-friendly territory, and the guy goes to Medevac for care or amputation of his leg).
    One thing that’s very noticeable here: the police are not a team. In the field, orders would be given to flank him, shooters assigned by names: “Jones, shoot him the leg if he moves 1 foot closer”. One person in command. No waiting for more officers. Get the whole thing over in about 3 minutes. No need for special weapons.
    Big cities must have a QRF.

  4. Lethal and Non Lethal weapons make the same sounds. Causing discharge of a Very lethal rifle. (Within 1 Second) Maybe the Non Lethal weapons need a different sound?

    Lets compare 9mm at 50yds.
    900fps with 290ft lb of energy
    5.56/223. At 50yds
    2900ft per second .1090ft lb of energy.
    Point being If a accidental discharge were to happen the pistol would be better.

  5. So why bother using less lethal 40mm if you are going to shoot him with both lethal and non-lethal? I would of thought you shoot first with the 40mm and then be ready with lethals to take him down further. I am glad these guys were there but it almost seems to me there was a loss or lack of communication in this particular aspect of what a non-lethal to lethal procedure would be. Hit 'em and they both shot, Why? The guy was clearly deranged and the first officer called these guys to handle in a certain way due to the suspect being so….. I am a little lost here or was this a mix up in communication!? Either way the guy is dead when the first officer tried not to make it so……..

  6. From what I saw, there was no point whatsoever in having less lethal options available when you have a trigger happy cop with live rounds chambered and ready to go.. Big knife, white car, bang bang, justified. No wonder civilians want the police defunded.

  7. They really quickly gloss over the use of lethal force. Why were the less lethal and lethal options used at the same time? Why did the officer fire his service weapon without letting the less lethal option do its thing. Am I missing something?

  8. Two 40s (Bean Bag rounds) and one rifle. You don't think the bean bags would've stopped him? Seems like the real ammo that killed him was unnecessary. Tazer/bean bag would've brought this to a more peaceful conclusion.
