LA Sheriff Deputies Kill Black Man Over Bicycle Violations

Bennie Garza | 02 September, 2020, 02:24

Deputies with the department told superiors they tried to stop Kizzee while he was riding his bike because he was in violation of vehicle codes.

The man, later identified by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner's Office as Kizzee, was pronounced dead at the scene; an autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.

In a statement, Deputy Juanita Navarro-Suarez said detectives attended the 1200 block of West 109th Place, unincorporated Los Angeles, where they allegedly stopped a man who was riding a bicycle.

A group of rioters got behind the wheel of a auto and smashed it through a store window in Los Angeles on Monday night, in the wake of an officer-involved shooting of a black man.

It was at that point deputies "noticed that inside the clothing items he dropped was a black semiautomatic handgun", and that's when both deputies opened fire, shooting the man several times, Dean said.

Protestors also took to the streets Monday night in the South Los Angeles area, where more than 100 marched to a sheriff's station near the shooting.

Regarding the alleged vehicle code violation that provoked the traffic stop that led to a confrontation between the deputies and the bicyclist Kizzee, Sheriff's Lt. Brandon Dean said that "it was not known which codes the man allegedly broke". Police say the handgun was recovered and no deputies were injured. Some chanted Say his name and No justice, no peace, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Dean said investigators had not yet interviewed witnesses or reviewed any surveillance or mobile phone video footage.

"Give us time to conduct our investigation", he said.

Neighborhood resident Arlander Givens, 68, questioned why deputies fired at a man who, according to the sheriffs official, wasnt holding a weapon. "We will get all of the facts of this case and eventually present them".

"Right now I'm sad and I'm mad at the same time" Fletcher Fair, Kizzee's aunt, told reporters at a Tuesday news conference, according to the Los Angeles Times. "That means he was unarmed".

The Sheriff's Department said multiple agencies are investigating.

The family is calling for Sheriff Alex Villanueva to release names of the deputies and for their "arrest and criminal prosecution", as well as body cameras to be implemented throughout the force.

Mr Kizzee fell to the ground and was declared dead at the scene.

Unlike the Los Angeles Police Department, the LASD is not equipped with body cameras.
