  • The Police Commission determined that last year’s police shooting of unarmed Walter William DeLeon in Los Feliz was justified. LAPD said that officers believed that 48-year-old DeLeon was holding a gun wrapped in a towel, a claim supported by several other several witnesses. But those claims were refuted by DeLeon’s attorney, who has filed a suit over the case. DeLeon suffered major injuries and was left disabled as a result of the June 2015 shooting. L.A.
