Robbery suspect apprehended after police shooting at Eagle Rock Plaza [updated]

Eagle ROck Plaza

Eagle Rock  —  Police fired at a robbery suspect outside the Eagle Rock Plaza this afternoon before apprehending the suspect at his home, according to authorities.

Police from neighboring Glendale responding to reports of a robbery spotted a suspect near the mall’s Target store, said Glendale Police Department spokesman Dan Suttles.  Police shot at the suspect during a foot chase.

Police, after a brief vehicle pursuit,  later apprehended the suspect at his home.  No injuries were reported, Suttles said.

CBS2 said the incident began when a man attempted to steal a women’s mobile phone at about 2:30 pm.

The area and streets, including Colorado Boulevard, around the mall will remain closed as police conduct their investigation.

Twitter users reported hearing shots fired as they exited the mall. “Literally heard the shots as I was heading to the exit,” said one Twitter user named Katrina.

“My son and I saw police chasing a guy,” said one Eastsider reader.  “He might’ve gotten away because a few minutes afterwards we saw many other police cars racing to the scene.”

  1. Do the police really need to be shooting guns in a public area over something as inconsequential as a stolen phone? Didn’t they learn anything after they shot and killed Melyda Corado at the Silver Lake Trader Joe’s? We should all be grateful to her family for challenging the LAPD over her death. Let’s hope their efforts eventually result in the police better considering the safety of the public.

    • i agree with bicurious

      • I was outside of the Target when the shooting occurred and unknowingly at the time also witnessed the suspect zoom pass the pedestrian crosswalk in front of Target fleeing in his car. Fortunately the police shooting cleared the crosswalk because if the suspect didn’t stop for the police, I don’t believe he would have slowed down or stopped for pedestrians. I’m glad nobody got hurt and the suspect apprehended.

  2. LAPD is out of control.

  3. Glendale Police responded to the call, according to the article, not LAPD.
