INGLEWOOD, Calif. – Authorities Friday identified a man who was fatally shot by Inglewood police officers in a residential neighborhood.
The shooting occurred about 1 p.m. Thursday in the 10000 block of Grevillea Avenue, west of Hawthorne Boulevard, according to the Lt. Scott Collins of the Inglewood Police Department.
Ivan Solis Mora, 34, of Inglewood died at the scene, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner.
Officers went to the location on a report of a man brandishing a knife in the front yard, Collins said.
Upon their arrival, the officers found a man who they said was armed with a knife and behaving erratically. The suspect ran into the rear yard, where there was an adjacent residence. There police attempted to de-escalate the situation and detain the man to no avail, Collins said. They then shot the suspect with pepper balls, rubber balls and Taser but the suspect did not surrender.
The officers then shot the suspect, as a final resort, Collins said. The investigation was continuing.
