A bullet fired by the LAPD killed the Trader Joe’s employee who died during a hostage situation this past weekend in the Silverlake district of Los Angeles.
Chief Michael Moore said Tuesday at a news conference. Ballistics tests show that a Los Angeles police officer fired the shot that struck and killed Melynda Corado, 27, during a shootout with an alleged hostage-taker at the Silver Lake supermarket Trader Joes on Saturday.
Gene Evin Atkins, 28, was arrested on suspicion of murder after Corado died during the more than two-hour hostage situation before Moore revealed it was officer gunfire that killed Corado.
Now the LAPD has released the Video and Audio of an undisclosed Officers Body Camera minutes before the shot was taken, the video is Shocking.
