LOS ANGELES (AP) — Four people have been arrested in the investigation of the fatal shooting of an off-duty Los Angeles police officer, authorities said Wednesday.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department announced the arrests in a brief statement that gave no details.
“The moment we can share further details without compromising the investigation, we will provide another update,” it said.
Officer Fernando Arroyos, 27, was shot at about 9:15 p.m. Monday in an unincorporated area of south Los Angeles County.
Authorities have said Arroyos was shopping for a house with his girlfriend when a pickup truck approached, several suspects got out, there was an argument and gunfire was exchanged between the assailants and the officer.
Sheriff’s deputies rushed Arroyos to a hospital but he died. The girlfriend was not wounded.
