Knife-Wielding Man Gets Shot by LAPD Officers Outside a Restaurant in Calabasas, California

* (Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only) *
Los Angeles, California — On November 01, 2023, around 7:45 p.m., Topanga Division uniformed officers responded to a radio call of an “Assault with a Deadly Weapon, suspect there now,” in the parking lot, located in the 23300 block of Avenue San Luis. The suspect, later identified as 35-year-old Benjamin Pritchard, was armed with a machete and struck a victim several times causing minor injuries. During the attack, Pritchard dropped the machete and produced a knife, causing the victim to run away. The officers arrived on scene and observed Pritchard in the parking lot, holding a knife. Pritchard ran from the officers, who broadcast a back-up request. The officers continued to follow Pritchard in their vehicle, they observed Pritchard now armed with a glass bottle along with a knife.

Officers made several attempts to detain him and gave directions to Pritchard to drop the bottle and knife. Pritchard continued to flee on foot. Officers followed Pritchard, who was still armed with a knife and bottle, heading towards a nearby restaurant. Officers utilized their Public Address System to direct community members to shelter in place, as Pritchard ran into a parking lot of a restaurant. Officers continued to verbalize with Pritchard who refused to comply, resulting in two TASER deployments. The first was ineffective and the second TASER deployment resulted in Pritchard falling to the ground, causing him to break the bottle in his possession. Pritchard, still armed with the knife, stood up, and ran inside the restaurant outdoor seating area. Numerous patrons were still inside the restaurant.

Pritchard turned towards the officers holding up the knife and an Officer-Involved Shooting (OIS) occurred. Pritchard was struck by gunfire and fell to the ground. Pritchard was taken into custody without further incident and an officer rendered medical aid until rescue ambulance arrived. Pritchard sustained gunshot wounds and was transported by Los Angeles Fire Department rescue ambulance to a local hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries. Pritchard was positively identified by Representatives from the Coroner’s office. Notifications to Pritchard’s next of kin were made. A machete was recovered at the original call location and the knife was recovered at the OIS scene. No officers or other community members were injured during this incident. Force Investigation Division (FID) investigators responded to the scene and are investigating this incident.
