Dashcam video from the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) cruiser shows a suspect shoot and wound a female officer at point blank range before being shot and killed by her partner. The Los Angeles Times reports that the suspect in the video, 32-year-old Richard Mendoza, was a gang member. After being asked to exit his vehicle Mendoza can be seen “[pulling] a .380-caliber handgun from his side and [shooting] the female officer who is standing just inches away.”

This will not make the news in a big way. When a police officer gets shot, many people don't care. Sad.

FoxNews just showed this amazing cam footage.

Glad that the officer was only wounded, and pray for her full recovery....and, that the perp gang member got his reward.

Lemme guess, CA.....this guy is an ILLEGAL....attempting to brazenly kill a police officer.

I like how the officer shoots the perp, walks around the car, then, one more shot just to make sure.

Definitely helps explain why cops are constantly on-edge, even when you’re acting politely. He was very cooperative, and showing his hands constantly... right up until the moment he shot the female officer.

Great shooting by the cop...neutralized him quickly without panicking.

Yeah, for sure. Glad he put that last round into the guy, wasn’t sure what his first shots hit but through or over the car, good shooting.

These cameras really remove a lot of doubt. When we have this kind of evidence the whole process should be shortened.

Hope the female officer has a full recovery. It looked to me like she did everything right, they guy was showing his empty hands, until he made a poor choice.

#4. and the shooter won’t be running for congress as a Democratic socialist, either.

How stupid is that? Exit the car to shoot a cop with another cop already pointing a gun at you.

She was NOT doing everything right. She was doing things PC. She should have had her gun out already. She should have told him to exit the car facing the front of the car. These body and dash cameras are a GOOD thing for police officers. When they do not intend to do something that they would be comfortable with being recorded, the cameras are not on, though.

Why did they stop the vehicle in the first place?
