los angeles police kill gunman on busy shopping street
Authorities say Los Angeles police shot and killed a gunman in a busy shopping area in the San Fernando Valley on Friday.
Los Angeles police Detective Megan Aguilar said the shooting took place after a gunman called the police on Ventura Avenue in Studio City.
Police had feared that there might be a bomb on the body or a nearby suspicious device, but the bomb squad cleared the area and found no explosives.
Aguilar said a gun was found.
Terry Berstein, 53, of California Studios, told The Associated Press that she was going to be a real estate agent around 3 p. m.
When she saw a relaxed looking man sitting on a low brick wall near the plantation owner between Chipotle restaurant and Union Bank, she drove the car into the parking lot.
It was not until several teenage children came out of the predicament and screamed that she noticed him.
Then she took a closer look and realized that the man was the reason for the crackle she heard.
Burstein said she saw him lift his pistol in the air and he fired six shots in a row.
She said he emptied the magazine and then, like a slow motion, took out a new magazine from a brown paper custom backpacks between his legs and reloaded it.
Then he sat there and stared quietly at the ground in front of him and seemed to think for a few minutes, says Burstein.
During that time, three people walked past and did not notice the fact that the man had just shot.
Even on a busy road on Friday afternoon, Burstein said, drivers near her didn\'t seem to realize what was going on.
Then, before putting the gun in the paper custom backpacks and appearing to wait, the man shot again into the air.
Burstein says the man doesn\'t seem to be interested in shooting at people because he\'s so relaxed that she\'s not worried.
\"He doesn\'t seem to be a dangerous person except that he obviously has this gun,\" Burstein said . \".
\"He\'s just in his own little world.
\"She described him as in his 20 s, with a thick beard and moustache, and said he seemed to be wearing a leather jacket for the winter in warm California weather.
\"He didn\'t make a fuss, didn\'t yell, and didn\'t seem to get angry. . .
\"There seems to be no game plan and no escape,\" Burstein said . \".
\"He just sat there waiting to be shot.
