LAPD Cops Shoot Suspect As He Reaches For Gun

Los Angeles, California — On May 5, 2023, around 12:40 a.m., uniformed patrol officers assigned to Southeast Patrol Division were conducting directed crime suppression in the area of Manchester Boulevard and Hoover Street. The officers observed a Hispanic female at an ATM along with a Hispanic male, later identified as Hector Macias, standing behind her. The officers engaged Macias in a conversation from their police vehicle. Based on Macias’ demeanor the officers formulated the opinion that Macias was possibly armed with a handgun. Macias and the female then abruptly entered a white Mercedes Benz parked next to them, being driven by another Hispanic male, and quickly sped away.

The officers immediately initiated a vehicle pursuit for a “415 Man with a Gun.” The Mercedes entered the 110 North Freeway, proceeded to the 10 East Freeway, and exited on Maple Avenue where Macias got out of the vehicle. The Mercedes then continued to drive away from the location. The officers made contact with Macias and ordered him to stop as he ran away, and Macias failed to comply with the officers’ commands. The officers exited their police vehicle and initiated a foot pursuit. As the officers ran after Macias, Macias tripped and fell in an open lot underneath the freeway. The officers caught up to Macias and a struggle ensued as Macias attempted to remove an unknown object from a satchel slung over his chest.

Macias then produced a firearm from the satchel and an officer-involved shooting occurred. Macias was struck by gunfire and transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased. A grid search of the area for the pursued Mercedes was conducted by responding officers and the airship unit, but neither the vehicle nor the additional occupants were located. One officer sustained minor abrasions to his left hand. The Forensic Science Division personnel from the Firearm Analysis Unit responded, rendered the firearm safe and recovered it from the scene. The analysis revealed the semi-automatic firearm at scene was loaded. The officers involved in the incident have been identified as Southeast Division Police Officer Colt Worley, and Southeast Division Police Officer Anthony Lopez

  1. Better than the alternative for him what a sad world it's become anybody think we can ever fix this and if we do are the lunatics among us still there or was it us the whole time did we do all of this to ourselves somehow I don't know but it's never too late we can all be better together that's the only way everyone must figure out a way we can put aside our opinions and truly fix the fundamental cause from the foundation so it's understood rather than alleviating the symptoms causing the sickness the real pandemic killing everyone meaninglessly pointlessly for generations

  2. I think it's really cool how 85%+ of every single cop body cam is non-white suspect, yet somehow white supremacists are the biggest threat to this nation

  3. The subject was obviously a bad dude, but what reason did the officers have to chase the car he was in? It's not illegal to concealed carry, even in CA with a permission slip from The Crown. He wasn't brandishing it and the cops just guessed he had one in his pack. They can't demand to know if any random person they encounter is carrying and demand that they show their LTC.

  4. que grandes policias un gran respeto hacia ellos espero que cuando gane milei de presidente en ARG las cosas cambien para los policias y que puedan hacer mejor su trabajo y que no los metan en la carcel por disparar a un ladron armado

  5. What a weird choice of actions. To run and survive even pulling the gun out but then just start shrieking and do something you know will get you killed.

  6. “ don’t reach for it” “I have eyes on him” as he’s on the ground dead.. fuckin ridiculous still scared y’all gonna get shot and the man is dead come on man y’all gotta do better

  7. I just don’t understand why when one cop shoots they all shoot. Bro only needed one bullet bruh y’all don’t way too fuckin much he could’ve survived

  8. His "friends" ditched him in that alley, I hope they found out quickly that he died shortly afterward in the gutter like a rat…

  9. Damn you could see him hesitating on whether or not he wanted to live before the reached for it. He knew he’d be toast if he did

  10. Cop: I'm gonna shot you, I'm gonna kill you, I'm gonna kill you, I'm gonna shoot you
    Suspect: F you, I don't care proceeds to get killed for being suspected of having a gun
    Ah cops the best anti-2nd Amendment tool! They always hate "man with a gun" even tho they have them too.
