woman shot in confrontation with Los Angeles police; The source says that my mother and her child were hospitalized
Police said a woman was hospitalized Friday night after a standoff with police in south Los Angeles ended with a shooting. A source said that a child was also taken to hospital.
Officer Tony M., a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department, said officers were called at 6:52 p.m. to the 200 block on West 52nd Street to report a violent woman with a mental illness.
Im said the woman was holed up inside a building. The officers eventually entered and at least one officer opened fire.
He said the woman was taken to a hospital in an unknown condition.
Em said he couldn’t confirm that a child was infected, either.
A law enforcement source familiar with the investigation confirmed the presence of a child and said the woman was the child’s mother.
The mother cut her baby off, prompting an officer to open fire to prevent her from doing more harm, according to the source.
A law enforcement source described the incident as a child custody dispute.
The mother and child were taken to the hospital, according to the source.
