LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Police Department has released new bodycam video of the aftermath of a fellow officer’s off-duty shooting. In April, Officer Mike Beyda was shot with his own service weapon by a suspect who had broken into Beyda’s vehicle. Beyda returned fire with a backup firearm, wounding 24-year-old Christopher Carmarena-Quintanilla.
On Sunday, police released audio from a 911 call and bodycam video from responding officers that detail the frantic fallout. During the 911 call, a woman is heard trying to help Beyda. In the video, officers are seen moving through an alley with their guns drawn.
“Stop moving your hands. Keep your hands in the air!” an officer says. The rest of the video is blurred out, but responders can be heard attending to Beyda and Carmarena-Quintanilla. Both men were treated for their injuries, police said. Investigators found two firearms at the scene.
Carmarena-Quintanilla is charged with attempted murder of a police officer, robbery, resisting an officer and felon possession of a firearm.
