Bodycam Shows Perp Shot Dead As He’s About To Slaughter Police Officer With A Machete…
LAPD Officers Deadly Shooting of Machete Carjacker Maniac
Los Angeles, CA – The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) released bodycam video Tuesday of a suspect who chased police with a machete and was fatally shot as he loomed above an officer with his long blade raised over his head.
The incident occurred after a man wielding a machete had just robbed an auto parts store in Hollywood, the Los Angeles Times reported.
“He walks in and goes over to the batteries and he grabs one, then he walks over to the door and he slams it on the ground and pulls out the machete and he threatens and swings it at us,” AutoZone employee Juan Chaidez told KTLA. “Then he grabbed the battery and runs away.”
Police said the man – later identified as 22-year-old Nathanial Pinnock – went from the robbery to a nearby Chick-fil-A restaurant on Sunset Boulevard and carjacked a drive-thru customer in a Lexus, according to the Los Angeles Times.
“They kind of gave him a second to surrender, but he high-jacked a car and then the driver hops out of the car, and that’s when he hopped over to the driver’s seat and that’s when he drove off,” Gunnels said.
