Mystery surrounds fatal fwy shooting

View Comments

Mystery continues this morning to surround the fatal shooting of a 19- year-old man by LAPD officers on the Ventura Freeway in Woodland Hills late Wednesday night.

Eight officers fired more than 90 bullets at Afghan immigrant Abdul Arian, who turns out to have been unarmed.

But before he was killed at the end of a freeway chase, Arian told a 911 operator that he was armed and would use his weapon against police. Then he pointed at the officers, as if he was getting ready to shoot.
