Who was Fernando Arroyos ?

Arroyos, who was a 3-year LAPD veteran assigned to the Olympic Division, was shot near 87th and Beach streets Monday night. Investigators say a black pickup truck approached him and three suspects got out.

Some sort of discussion ensued before an exchange of gunfire, in which Arroyos was wounded. Authorities said he was looking for a house with his girlfriend at the time of the shooting.

Five people were arrested after an off-duty Los Angeles police officer was shot and killed during an apparent armed robbery attempt in the Florence neighborhood of South Los Angeles.

Arrested and Charged

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, three men and two women were arrested in Florence Tuesday afternoon in connection with the death of 27-year-old Fernando Arroyos.

Arroyos, who was a 3-year LAPD veteran assigned to the Olympic Division, was shot near 87th and Beach streets Monday night. Investigators say a black pickup truck approached him and three suspects got out.

Some sort of discussion ensued before an exchange of gunfire, in which Arroyos was wounded. Authorities said he was looking for a home with his girlfriend at the time of the shooting.

The sheriff’s department says no one has been charged with the Arroyos murder and the names of the five people detained have not been released at this time.

Early Tuesday morning, a procession escorted Arroyos’ body from the hospital to the coroner’s office.

“We mourn the loss of one of our officers who was shot and killed in an armed robbery attempt. The officer was off duty. We pray for the officer’s family and his fellow officers, during this time of pain and sadness,” said the officer. The Los Angeles Police Protective League tweeted shortly after midnight Tuesday.

His fellow officers and friends described him as brilliant, modest and dedicated.

Shooting

Sheriff’s officials said a second man was found with a gunshot wound just a few miles away from the area where the off-duty officer was attacked. That unidentified man was transported to a local hospital. Investigators have yet to determine if that individual was somehow connected to Arroyos ’fatal shooting.

Police vehicles escorted the officer’s body from St. Francis Medical Center to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office early Tuesday morning.

Twitter

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti expressed his condolences Tuesday on Twitter, saying: “Our hearts break over this tragic loss for our police department and our city. I join all of Los Angeles in grief today, and keep your loved ones in my prayers. ”

Arroyos had been in the force for three years and is survived by his mother and her stepfather. He was an only child, Moore said.

GirlFriend

An off-duty Los Angeles Police Department officer was fatally shot during a robbery attempt while searching for a home with his girlfriend, authorities said Tuesday.

Officer Fernando Arroyos, 27, and his girlfriend were crossing a street in a South Los Angeles neighborhood around 9:15 p.m. Monday when a truck with three men approached and attempted to rob the couple, Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore said.

The three men “got out of the vehicle and confronted our officer, and it appears the target was an attempted robbery,” Moore said. “One of the suspects, according to the information we have at this preliminary stage, pulled out a pistol. The officer yelled at his girlfriend to leave, to run … to get back to the car. ”

Investigation

An only child, Arroyos co-workers say he had two dreams in life. The first was being the first person in his family to go to college. He did it by graduating from UC Berkeley with honors.

His second dream was to become a Los Angeles police officer.

An investigation is ongoing.
