Summaryhttp://Plainclothes officers when in an unmarked car monitoring a nearby memorial vigil when Chavez crossed the street to walk toward them, and as he passed, he reached into his waistband. The officers got out of their car, drew their weapons and ID'd themselves as police. Chavez removed a blue steel revolver from his waistband and was shot. A later LA Times profile of Chavez describes him as a reformed gang member and current security guard. http://articles.latimes.com/2013/aug/04/local/la-me-adv-lapd-shooting-20130805 NOTE: while Chavez' name would seem to indicate that he was of Hispanic or Latino origin, he is described in by the LA Times only as White.
