The Los Angeles Police Commission on Tuesday found that officers were justified in shooting an unarmed man in Los Feliz last summer who had a towel wrapped around one of his hands.
A report released Tuesday revealed new details about the high-profile case. Minutes before he was shot and gravely wounded, Walter William DeLeon told a witness to call 911 and tell the operator he had a gun, the report said.
DeLeon, a father of two, was struck in the head and permanently injured.
