Los Angeles police officers fatally shot a man Saturday after he allegedly shot another individual to death in a residential area of Reseda just north of Reseda High School, authorities said. Multiple officers were involved in the shooting, which occurred at about 4:40 p.m., shortly after they responded to a report of shots fired in the 6600 block of Etiwanda Avenue, according to law enforcement authorities familiar with the investigation. "After they discovered the victim, who was dead at the scene, they set up a perimeter," said Police Department spokesman Cleon Joseph.

Your pallid article on the deployment of Los Angeles Police Department officers (Jan. 19) was just another irksome story in police-bashing. Ted Rohrlich conveniently failed to mention what even the Christopher Commission discovered, that the out of the five major cities in the U.S., the LAPD has the fewest officers per citizens it serves, yet makes the most arrests per officer. Now that was accomplished through the quality leadership of Chief Daryl Gates. JORGE F. TORRES Los Angeles

" One of the men pulled out a gun and fired multiple rounds at the officers, according to Bowler.

A man who complained he was struggling to breathe died in Los Angeles police custody last month after officers ignored his repeated pleas for help, according to multiple law enforcement sources who reviewed a video of the incident. Two officers transporting 26-year-old Jorge Azucena to an LAPD station were dismissive of his “numerous, numerous statements about trouble breathing and [needing] help,” said one source. At one point, an officer responded to Azucena with a quip along the lines of, “If you can talk, you can breathe,” the source said.

Having a police force that is too small has its rewards, at least for the bank accounts of officers patrolling Los Angeles' streets. Just ask the Los Angeles Police Department sergeant who made $240,000 last year -- $131,000 of that from working overtime. Or another sergeant, who added $105,800 in overtime pay to his $101,900 annual salary.

Los Angeles police officers tampered with voice recording equipment in dozens of patrol cars in an effort to avoid being monitored while on duty, according to records and interviews. An inspection by Los Angeles Police Department investigators found about half of the estimated 80 cars in one South L.A. patrol division were missing antennas, which help capture what officers say in the field. The antennas in at least 10 more cars in nearby divisions had also been removed. LAPD Chief Charlie Beck and other top officials learned of the problem last summer but chose not to investigate which officers were responsible.

Two Los Angeles Police Department officers are under investigation for allegedly preying on women over a period of five years, luring them into an unmarked car and forcing them to perform sex acts, according to court records. Detectives from the LAPD's internal affairs unit suspect that Officers Luis Valenzuela and James Nichols targeted at least four women whom they had arrested previously or who worked for them as informants, according to a search warrant reviewed by The Times.
