From the Los Angeles Times:
The Los Angeles Police Departmentís news release on an Oct. 12 officer-involved shooting seemed fairly routine.
Officers searching for several suspects who had fled after being stopped for questioning found one hiding under an SUV on Woodlawn Avenue in South L.A. The officers pulled the suspect out by his ankles, saw what looked like a metallic object in his hands and opened fire, critically wounding him.
But one crucial piece of information was left out of the release: The suspectís hands were cuffed behind his back at the time and he was lying on his stomach.
