Criminal Justice Quote: Police Shoot Rampaging Man Rejected for Law Enforcement Job

     A man suspected of wounding an officer while shooting up a Los Angeles police station died Thursday, April 24, 2014 at a hospital more than two weeks after the attack….Daniel Christoph Yealu, 29…was wounded in the April 7 shootout with two officers at the West Traffic Division. He had been charged with attempted murder.

     Yealu, a onetime security guard, had applied to join the Los Angeles Police Department in 2009 but was rejected. Police said he walked into the station, told the desk officer, "I have a complaint," and opened fire with a handgun. The wounded officer has been released from the hospital. The other officer in the shootout wasn't hurt.

     Yealu left an AK-47 rifle in his car when he entered the police station….Officers serving a search warrant at his West Los Angeles home turned up several more guns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.
