    Los Angeles police have released a startling video in the search for a driver accused of fleeing the scene of a hit-and-run incident that left a grandmother seriously injured. The 70-year-old victim had the proper signal in a crosswalk when the driver made a left turn and slammed into her on Sept. 4, leaving her with a brain bleed, broken neck and broken pelvis, amongst other injuries, investigators say. Police believe she will recover – but are now offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the suspect. “I want to tell the driver to please turn himself in because my mother didn’t deserve to be laying down on the ground without any assistance,” the victim’s daughter, Ramona, told reporters at a press conference Tuesday afternoon. “This person needs to turn...

    People have been dropping by Lupita’s corner for years. ¡Hola mija! they often shout as they walk past the front door. Qué hay de bueno? What’s new?

    The distance was just over a quarter of a mile. On First Street, from the old Los Angeles Times building on Spring up to The Music Center on Grand. With a slight incline. Me and a Metro bike, ready to channel my inner Tour de France champ. Perhaps be one of those Basques cyclists who dominate those mountain climbs. I nearly died. I hadn’t biked more than a block in over a decade, yet I was already halfway through a six-mile bike ride around downtown Los Angeles that doubled as a history lesson on the forgotten past of Latinos in downtown. My lungs burned; my legs chafed. Maybe I should’ve worn a more appropriate outfit than a free...
    By STEFANIE DAZIO | The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — A Black man shot and killed by Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies wasn’t holding a gun when they opened fire, attorneys for his family said Tuesday, contradicting a claim that he had picked up a dropped weapon during a struggle. Dijon Kizzee, 29, “posed no threat” to deputies when they fired 19 shots at him, civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump said at a news conference. Crump also represents the families of George Floyd and Jacob Blake. Floyd was killed when a Minneapolis officer knelt on his neck, and Blake was left paralyzed by a police shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Those incidents prompted nationwide protests. Kizzee’s death also sparked a series...
    When the 2019-20 season began, the Los Angeles Clippers were favorites to win it all. However, when it came to the Playoffs, the Clippers crumbled in just the second round. Moreover, both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George put forth an awful performance in the series decider Game 7. In fact, they couldn’t even score a single point in the fourth quarter! That led to the Denver Nuggets advancing to the WCF. They overcame the highly rated, Clippers team and a 3-1 deficit. However, what’s done is done, and the Clippers have to focus on coming back strong next season. Paul George tried this approach after the Game 7 defeat, but it was met by several eye rolls. Now, according to...

    The Western Conference Finals feature the Lakers vs Nuggets in an epic battle for a place in the finals. The Nuggets have already proven that they have the potential to upset big names. But somehow, they have been unable to replicate the same magic with the Los Angeles Lakers. The Denver Nuggets are down 0-2 in the series, but it is not due to a lack of effort. They must be exhausted from playing a game on alternative days and it has finally started to reflect on their playing style. Despite that, the Nuggets erased a 16 point deficit in Game 2 of the WCF.

    The Denver Nuggets struck back with a much-needed win over the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 3. After their Game 2 comeback fell short at the hands of an Anthony Davis buzzer-beater, the Denver Nuggets easily could’ve fallen apart in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. And yet, facing a 2-0 deficit against the mighty Los Angeles Lakers, these resilient Nuggets offered up yet another impressive effort in fulfilling their underdog role Tuesday night, beating the top seed in the Western Conference to put the series at 2-1. Led by Jamal Murray’s 28 points, 12 assists and 8 rebounds, along with 22 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists from Nikola Jokic and a playoff career-high 26 points from Jerami...

    Attorneys representing the family of Dijon Kizzee on Tuesday presented the findings of an independent autopsy. Kizzee, a 29-year-old Black man, was shot and killed by deputies from the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department on August 31. Kizzee was fatally shot after deputies tried to stop him for riding his bicycle on the wrong said of the road, police said last week. Los Angeles County Sheriff's Captain Kent Wegener said Thursday that Kizzee fled from the officers who tried to cite him for a traffic violation, according to CBS Los Angeles. At one point, Kizzee dropped a pistol and, according to Wegener, he "bends over, reaches, picks up the gun and is shot while he stands with the gun in hand." Wegener...
    Protesters marched on Tuesday for the second day in a row from the scene where a Black man was fatally shot by deputies to a Los Angeles County Sheriff's office, demanding answers over the latest deadly encounter between police and a Black American. The sheriff's office has said Dijon Kizzee was stopped for riding his bicycle in violation of vehicle codes, tried to run away, and was then shot after dropping a bundle of items that included a handgun. But with no body cameras in use by the deputies and no cellphone video yet to surface, activists say the public is being asked to take the sheriff's department's account of the incident at face value, and given the recent spate...
    A California firefighter killed while battling a blaze in the mountains east of Los Angeles was identified Tuesday as a member of an elite Hotshot crew dedicated to fighting wildfires. Charles Morton, 39, a San Diego native, was a 14-year veteran of the U.S. Forest Service and a squad boss for the Big Bear Interagency Hotshots in San Bernardino National Forest, officials said. He was married and had a daughter.

    One hotel emptied its rooms in late August. Another did so last week. A third is winding down this week. It’s the beginning of the end for L.A. County’s Project Roomkey, the $100 million-plus program to repurpose hotels and motels emptied by the coronavirus as safe havens for homeless people. After peaking at just over 4,300 guests — about 30% of its ambitious goal — the project will shed several hundred beds monthly until it closes down early next year, said Heidi Marston, executive director of the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority. The program is being squeezed by uncertain funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which pays about 75% of its cost, raising the possibility of a sudden cutoff...
    The Angels are headed for another losing season and moving toward a front office change, but is Dave Dombrowski the answer? At 24-31 entering Tuesday, the Los Angeles Angels are assured of a fifth straight losing season. General manager Billy Eppler is also in the last year of his contract, and Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic has reported Dave Dombrowski is the most frequently mentioned replacement option as the Angels likely look to make a change. Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times has added a “widely held belief” the Angels will make a front office regime change, and the “industry consensus” is owner Arte Moreno will pursue Dombrowski.

    Vanessa Bryant is suing the L.A. County Sheriff and his department after deputies reportedly took photos of Kobe and Gianna Bryant's bodies at the helicopter crash site in January. In the lawsuit, Vanessa claims, 'No fewer than 8 sheriff's deputies at the crash site pulled out their personal cell phones and snapped photos of the dead children, parents and coaches.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Starting this week, census takers are grabbing reflective vests, face masks, bug spray and flashlights and heading out at night in groups of four to track down one of the hardest populations to count in the 2020 census — the homeless. Over three days and nights this week, census takers will fan out to shelters, soup kitchens, mobile food van stops and other places across the U.S. where people experiencing homelessness often gather. They will follow that with overnight visits to encampments, under bridges, transit stations and other places where people live outside. Delayed for six months by the global pandemic, it’s one of the hardest logistical operations the U.S. Census Bureau undertakes. Some 49,000 locations...

    BERRY CREEK, Calif. —  Berry Creek has been many things in its long history — a stagecoach stop, a lumber town, a vacation spot, a gold mining camp. It is home to retirees from crowded, expensive cities, marijuana growers and loners — lots of loners. Now, Berry Creek has a new and terrible distinction. When the North Complex West Zone fire swept through this wooded enclave about two weeks ago, it killed more people and destroyed more homes here than anywhere else in its destructive path. Fire Station 61 burned to the ground. Chief Reed Rankin, who heads the volunteer company, lost his home in the blaze. Only one of the seven current or former firefighters still has a...

    The Denver Nuggets almost completed another playoff comeback on an LA team. They overcame a 16-point deficit to take a one-point lead with 2.1 seconds to go. Alex Caruso missed a wide-open three, and the ball was knocked out of bounds by Jamal Murray. Murray blocked Danny Green’s post-rebound shot. Rajon Rondo threw the inbound pass to a wide-open Anthony Davis, who won the game for LA. However, there was more behind that final play. Davis didn’t just hit the shot, but he got a surprising amount of room to do so. Nikola Jokic made a noble effort at contesting, but he wasn’t on Davis.

    The Los Angeles Clippers run in the Playoffs is an accurate depiction of expectation versus reality. Though fans wanted to witness an all-Los Angeles Western Conference Finals, the Clippers ruined those chances. Nobody expected them to lose that series after they gained a 3-1 lead against the Denver Nuggets in the Conference Semi-Finals. The Nuggets made a solid comeback, which took the series to Game 7.

    After successfully acquiring Paul George and Kawhi Leonard last summer, the Los Angeles Clippers have managed to turn themselves from an average team to a legitimate title contender in the Western Conference. With two All-Stars and a quality supporting cast, most people considered the Clippers as the heavy favorites to bring home the Larry O’Brien Trophy in the 2019-20 NBA season. Unfortunately, they failed to live up to expectations. Aside from failing to capture their first NBA championship title, the Clippers were even unable to advance to the Western Conference Finals after being upset by the Denver Nuggets in the second round. After suffering a huge disappointment, the drama has started to build around George and the Clippers. Aside from...

    For years, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) hasn’t given a clear answer on whether it uses facial recognition in its policing work. That changed this week. On Monday, the agency told The Los Angeles Times it has used the technology nearly 30,000 times since late 2009.  The LAPD uses the Los Angeles County Regional Identification System (LACRIS), a database of more than 9 million mugshots maintained by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. At one point, more than 500 LAPD personnel had access to the system, though the department claims that the number is closer to 300 in recent months. Josh Rubenstein, a spokesperson for the LAPD, said he couldn’t be sure how many arrests LACRIS has helped the police department...

    The final Raiders game at the Oakland Coliseum — yes, it was officially RingCentral Coliseum at the time, whatever — ended not with cheers and a standing ovation for the players walking off the field, but rather a chorus of boos and trash on the field. Uh, thanks for the memories? A loss to the Jaguars on Dec. 15, 2019, shut the door on the Raiders’ time in Oakland. The franchise kicked off the 2020 season in Las Vegas after calling Oakland home for more than two decades following a previous move from Los Angeles in 1995.  So why exactly did this shift to Sin City happen?

    The NBA bubble has provided some memorable moments for basketball fans, and while four games have ended at the buzzer, some were better than others. The NBA bubble had already given fans an enjoyable ride through the postseason prior to Sunday night, but Anthony Davis’s Game 2 buzzer-beater to lift the Los Angeles Lakers over the Denver Nuggets already ranks among the best highlights from the last few months. The Celtics certainly could have played better defense down the stretch, and while they eventually won the series in seven games, Toronto made it interesting with the Game 3 win, nearly overcoming a 2-0 deficit to advance.1.

    JUNIPER HILLS, Calif. (AP) — An enormous wildfire that churned through mountains northeast of Los Angeles and into the Mojave Desert was still threatening homes on Monday, but officials said calmer winds could help crews corral the flames. At 165 square miles (427 square kilometers), the Bobcat Fire is one of the largest ever in Los Angeles County and it has burned for more than two weeks. It’s just 15% contained. Evacuation orders and warnings are in place for thousands of residents in foothill and desert communities, where semi-rural homes and a popular nature sanctuary have burned. No injuries have been reported. Erratic winds that drove flames into the community of Juniper Hills over the weekend had died down, said...
    California’s Bobcat fire is one of the largest blazes in the history of Los Angeles County — torching more than 103,000 acres and setting off a rare “firenado” captured on video.

    The NBA Playoffs are in their final stretch, with only four teams remaining. In the Western Conference, the Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets are battling for a spot in the finals. While the Lakers hold a 1-0 lead, the Nuggets have already established themselves as the comeback kings. The Nuggets roster must be pretty exhausted at this point in the Playoffs.

Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray are playing with a sense of emergency, and it’s been working pretty well for the team. But the Lakers are on a different level than other teams in the Playoffs. LeBron James and Anthony Davis are playing...

    On an NFL Sunday, the NBA offers a showcase of its own in Lakers vs Nuggets The Lakers took the Nuggets to task in Game 1, which isn’t a huge surprise given the extended break LeBron James and Co. had in between series. The Nuggets were fresh off the emotional high of a 3-1 comeback against the Lakers’ Los Angeles neighbor, and were not prepared for the buzzsaw that is James and Anthony Davis. Game 2 should be more competitive, with Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray offering up a challenge to the Lakers the likes of which they haven’t really faced this postseason. Los Angeles has mostly silenced the dynamic duos who’ve attempted to end their run. Damian Lillard and...
