The Los Angeles police department has released body-camera footage from an officer who fired shots at an assault suspect inside a department store, in an incident that also killed a 14-year-old girl.
Officers from the LAPD were called to a Burlington store in North Hollywood after they received calls about a man striking customers with a bike lock.
They arrived and an officer shot the man inside the store.
Valentina Orellana-Peralta, 14, was hiding with her mother inside the changing area and was fatally shot when a bullet came through the drywall.
CCTV video showed Daniel Elena Lopez had attacked two women, including one who he dragged by her feet through the store’s aisles as she tried to crawl away.
The 24-year-old suspect died at the scene.
Police believe a bullet bounced off the floor and went through the wall to the changing area.
LAPD have launched an investigation as well as The California Department of Justice.
