KTLA 5 reports that at 2 AM  Saturday, Torrance police officers attempted to stop a suspected DUI driver traveling along the Pacific Coast highway.

After failing to do so using techniques such as the PIT maneuver, they opened fire several streets away from their initial encounter into the driver’s vehicle.

Officers attempted to perform life-saving measures on the driver, and he was taken to the hospital, where he later passed away.

No officers were injured in the event and the news is not reporting whether or not the driver was armed.

In such tragedies death and flight is never the solution, experienced legal counsel is needed for all parties to seek a fair, just, and equitable resolution. Attorney Earl Jiang can help.
