Summary Officer Involved is an in-depth multi-platform series about when and how officers in Los Angeles County choose to use deadly force – and whether they’re held accountable. We built a comprehensive database of all shootings involving law enforcement--whether fatal or not--in L.A. County over a five-year period and provide to the public for the first time, insights on who is getting shot and under what circumstances. We found one in four people shot were unarmed and black people are shot at three times their proportion of the population. We also found prosecutors haven't charged an officer for an on-duty shooting in 15 years.
