L.A. Police Commission rubber stamps shooting of Carnell Snell Jr.

The Los Angeles Police Commission decided Tuesday that an officer was justified in shooting Carnell Snell Jr. last fall in South L.A.

Siding with Chief Charlie Beck, the panel cleared the officer who fatally shot Snell, saying his decision to pull the trigger fell within the LAPD’s policy for using deadly force.

The Los Angeles Police Protective League, the union representing rank-and-file LAPD officers, welcomed the commission’s review of the shooting
