Officials release name of man fatally shot in incident with Alhambra police

The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department identified the young man involved in Friday's fatal officer-involved shooting in Alhambra as 25-year-old Eduardo Fernandez.

According to a Sheriff's press release from Saturday, the shooting took place at the 2900 block of West Main Street on Friday evening, after a woman called police to report a disturbance involving her husband, son and herself, and that she had described her son as "possibly armed."

The press release describes someone as shooting at Alhambra police officers as they "positioned themselves across the street." Officers shot back, striking the suspected shooter, who was then transported to the hospital, where he died of his injuries.

An autopsy is now pending as the Sheriff's Department continues to investigate. Alhambra Police Department officer Sgt. Jerry Johnson described the sheriff's involvement as standard procedure, so "it's not officers investigating officers" within the same police department.

LA County Sheriff's Lt. Steve Jauch said that his department will present information from their investigation to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, who will decide if what the officers did was legal. The Alhambra Police Department will also conduct an internal review of the officers' conduct.

Body camera and dashboard camera footage has already been recovered and turned over to the district attorney. Anybody who may have more information about the incident should call the LA County Sheriff's Department's Homicide Division at (323) 890-5500.
