The Beverly Hills Police Department (BHPD) sent an alert to residents at approximately 5 p.m. on Nov. 9. The alert, which described a high-risk traffic stop in the 200 block of North Beverly Boulevard, stemmed from an armed robbery that had occurred in Culver City earlier that day.
BHPD officers identified the suspects’ vehicle in the city and attempted a traffic stop around 4:30 p.m. A single shot was fired at officers from the vehicle. The BHPD then used less lethal rounds to gain access to the car, at which point one suspect was taken into custody and another barricaded himself inside the vehicle.
After a standoff, a canine unit was deployed to apprehend the barricaded suspect. The individual was taken into custody and transported to an area hospital for non-life-threatening injuries after being bitten by the police canine.
A firearm was found in the vehicle after all suspects were cleared. No BHPD officers were injured during the incident.
