LAPD chief and commission faults officer in fatal shooting of unarmed man

LAPD Of­ficer Bri­an Van Gorden opened fire March 5 after chas­ing a stolen vehicle driv­en by Ser­gio Navas, 35, in­to Burb­ank. The L.A. Po­lice Com­mis­sion agreed with Chief Charlie Beck’s find­ing that an of­ficer with sim­il­ar train­ing and ex­per­i­ence “would not reas­on­ably be­lieve Navas’ ac­tions presen­ted an im­min­ent threat of death or ser­i­ous bod­ily in­jury.”
