LAPD release footage of Newton Division officer-involved shooting

LAPD released footage of the Newton Division officer-involved shooting that occurred last month in Newton.

December 1st, 2019, around 2:00am, LAPD uniformed patrol officers assigned to Newton Division responded to a radio call of a “man with a gun” in the area of 7th street and San Pedro Street.

The suspect’s description was provided and was reported to have been pointing a gun at passersby. 

When the officers arrived in the area, they observed the suspect, identified as 20-year old, Lonyea Marquis Calloway, near the corner of 7th Street and San Pedro Street.

Calloway then ran eastbound on 7th Street and then southbound on Crocker Street. 

The officers then initiated a foot pursuit of Calloway and as back up units approached him, Calloway changed his direction and ran towards the officers at which time an officer-involved shooting occurred.

Calloway was not struck by gunfire and immediately surrendered without further incident. Calloway’s .38 caliber revolver was also recovered at the scene as evidence.
