Authorities ID man fatally wounded in LAPD shooting in Wilmington

Authorities Wednesday identified a man who was fatally shot by Los Angeles police in Wilmington.

The LAPD shooting was reported at about 3:30 a.m. Tuesday near E Street and Quay Avenue, where officers were following a truck that had been reported stolen, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

“As the officers were following the suspect on E (Street), he crashed the truck he was driving and ran from the officers,” the LAPD said in a statement.

“A brief foot pursuit ensued, (and) during that foot pursuit, an officer involved shooting occurred,” police said. “The suspect … was struck by gunfire and taken into custody. LAFD paramedics responded to the scene and determined the suspect deceased.”

On Wednesday, the Los Angeles County coroner’s office identified the man as Jason Sanderson, 41, whose city of residence was not known.

Sanderson was in possession of two handguns, police said. The circumstances of the shooting were under investigation.
