On June 20th LAPD received a 911 call from a woman who reported that a man had stabbed his wife, and the victim's intestines were hanging out of her body. Officers confronted Alen Alpanian, 53, who was armed with a 12-inch knife and refused officers' commands. He then began to walk toward officers while brandishing the knife.
Officers shot Alpanian with beanbag rounds and Tased him. Neither had any effect.
Alpanian got within 10 feet of officers and an officer fired his duty weapon six times at the armed man.
