Inglewood police said an investigation is expected to find that eight officers were justified when they fired 66 shots in two or three seconds at a kidnaping suspect after a car chase, hitting him nine times and killing him. The incident was one of the most intense instances of police firepower directed toward a single suspect in recent memory, according to several veteran Los Angeles police officers and "officer-involved shooting" investigators contacted by The Times.

Margaret Wilson was roused from sleep early Thursday when a running gun battle between Inglewood police and three gunmen came to a dramatic end just outside her door. Wilson, a retiree who recently bought a condominium with her husband in Inglewood, said the chaotic exchange of gunfire reminded her of the civil war that had forced her to flee Liberia and return to the United States in 1998. "But I didn't think I was going to run into a war in my own backyard," she said.

In sharp contrast to an initial police report, the autopsy on 19-year-old Patrick Shanahan describes "considerable bruising" on Shanahan's forehead, neck, scalp, cheek, jaw, shoulder, chest, ribs and knee, said spokesman Bob Dambacher.

Awakened by the sound of gunshots, Fanny Paiz opened her window and looked across the dark Inglewood street to a nightmare scene of bloodied neighbors and a house in flames. "I heard a man yelling," Paiz said. "Then I saw a lady run out into the street with a child in her arms. She was bleeding. She was standing in the middle of the street with the child, whose face was covered in blood. She fell down, screaming, 'He's shooting me. He's shooting me.' " Three other shooting victims were in the house, all members of the same family who police say were attacked before dawn Saturday by a rampaging neighbor who was being evicted.

A traffic ticket and singer Axl Rose's volatile temperament almost added up to a canceled Guns N' Roses concert Tuesday night at the Forum. Inglewood police say that Rose threw a tantrum over a ticket his limousine driver received for an illegal left turn outside the Inglewood arena. The singer threatened to call off his band's show unless police canceled the citation. Police say they agreed, fearing a riot might erupt if the show did not go on.
