Definition of Suicide by police on the Web:
Suicide by cop is a suicide method in which a suicidal individual deliberately acts in a threatening way, with the goal of provoking a lethal response from a law enforcement officer, such as being shot to death.
Jorge Jimenez, 31, is the name of the man who died after being shot in what is being described by law enforcement as "suicide by police" in Montebello earlier this afternoon.
His family is heartbroken tonight, and many of them watched helplessly as their son was shot by law enforcement officials, and the shooting was captured by several witnesses on their iPhone, and was also covered by every news outlet in Southern California today and well into this evening.
Like I normally do after these type of "high" profile cases, I wanted to post a the most "factual" reports from some of the best television journalists here in Los Angeles.
Above is a report from Patrick Healy (on scene reporter) and his producer Scott Weber...of NBC LA.
