RIP JESSICA BROWN (June 20, 1988 – July 9, 2023)
Formal pronouncement of death was made on Sunday at 9:47 a.m.
The decedent was fatally shot by police.
LAPD responded around 8:30 a.m. to calls about an assault with a deadly weapon in the area of Reseda Boulevard and Hatteras Street. The suspect allegedly used a metal pipe to attack four individuals along Reseda, leaving them with serious head and face injuries. When officers arrived on the scene, they found Brown near the parking lot of a gas station at Reseda and Burbank boulevards.
“As the suspect held the pipe and advanced toward the officers, they deployed a Taser and 40mm foam baton round and an officer-involved shooting occurred.”
The metal pipe was later determined to be a metal dumbbell bar, approximately 14 inches long.
