LAPD officer unjustified in shooting that killed girl, 14

November 23, 2022

LOS ANGELES (AP) A Los Angeles police officer violated policy when he fired a rifle at a suspect inside a clothing store last year, killing a 14-year-old girl in a dressing room, a civilian oversight board ruled Tuesday.

Officer William Dorsey Jones Jr. fired three times when police responded to a Burlington clothing store in the San Fernando Valley where 24-year-old Daniel Elena Lopez had brutally attacked two women on Dec. 23, 2021.

Valentina Orellana Peralta was shot and killed as she prayed in a dressing room with her mother, Soledad Peralta. Jones also killed Elena Lopez.

The Police Commission ruled that Jones was justified in firing once but that his two subsequent shots were out of policy.

1. What is needed is a national bad cop registry, akin to

Sex offender registry, so when these states/cities hire these crooks, they will have to answer for it. Am sure, with some of the cop cases being in national news, the depts that hire them, must know their records. Then, of course, there's fl, saying come on down to crooked cops. Thanks for the update
