A police officer fired the shot that killed a 19-month-old girl held hostage by her father at a Watts auto lot, according to autopsy results released Wednesday. Police officials from the start said it was most likely that an officer's bullet killed the toddler -- an outcome they have described as tragic, but that they also blamed squarely on the suspect, who shot at police and his teenage stepdaughter during the more than two-hour standoff Sunday.

When SWAT officers entered the tiny office after a 2 1/2 -hour standoff in Watts 10 days ago, the 19-month-old girl they were trying to save was in her father's arms. Moments later, the father and the girl were dead, both killed by police bullets. I learned this from LAPD Chief William J. Bratton on Tuesday evening after visiting the site of the controversial shooting at 104th Street and Avalon Boulevard and calling the chief with questions. I'd had some questions before visiting the scene.

The Rev. Al Sharpton joined Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on Sunday in calling for patience by community members until the city has finished its investigation into the death last week of a 19-month-old toddler killed in a police shootout with her father. "There cannot be a knee-jerk reaction when we will always say the police are right," Sharpton told those at Hope Community Church in South Los Angeles. "There cannot also be a reaction, knee-jerk in the community, saying they're always wrong."

The suspect, identified as Jose Raul Lemos, also died at the scene. "He was using the baby as a shield.

In the Watts neighborhood where police killed a 19-month-old toddler held hostage by her gun-wielding father, neighbors have spent the week agonizing over whether the LAPD should share blame for the painful tragedy. Many are outraged that the police didn't do more to save Suzie Marie Pena's life before moving in and killing her father, 35-year-old car dealer Jose Raul Pena, catching the child in the cross-fire.

Los Angeles police said Monday that the shootout that left a 19-month-old toddler dead occurred after officers attempted to rescue the girl by storming the used car dealership where her father was holding her hostage. The decision came more than two hours into Sunday's standoff when officers believed they had wounded Raul Pena and hoped they could save Susie Lopez, a pigtailed little girl whose somber face adorned magazine ads for his car lot.
