LOS ANGELES – The Angeles County coroner’s office Sunday released the name of a motorcyclist who died in an officer involved shooting in the city of Inglewood Sept. 16.
The victim was identified as Alexis Pulido, 22.
A source within Inglewood Police Department reached out to 2UrbanGirls and described the situation as an “officer involved shooting”.
“A man attacked IPD and ripped the gun and holster from the officers belt, and was able to fire a round at officers and their partner returned fire,” said the source who is not authorized to speak on the matter.
Neighbors describe the man as appearing to be “high” and knocking on people’s doors in search of a cell phone charger.
“This is the second or third shooting in our area this week!” said the resident who declined to be identified. “One Monday at Melo’s Burgers and the other you reported on at the Lennox border. Graffiti has increased on our side of town.”
