Overkill? Cop’s Shoot Suspect Armed With A Crowbar 10 Times!

MONTEREY PARK, Calif. (KABC) — A suspect armed with a crowbar was shot outside of a Carl’s Jr. restaurant in Monterey Park on Monday morning.

Authorities say the incident began with the suspect breaking windows at Carl’s Jr. in the 1200 block of Avenida Cesar Chavez just before 9:30 a.m. The suspect then walked inside, while workers and customers ran outside. Police arrived as the suspect was exiting the fast-food restaurant.

After repeatedly telling the suspect to drop the weapon, the suspect was Tasered. Police said the Taser was ineffective, and the suspect swung the three-foot metal bar at officers twice. At least one officer opened fire on the suspect.

The suspect was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. No one else was injured in the incident. The officer-involved shooting is under investigation.
