Man killed by LAPD dropped from Explorer program

High-speed chase ended on the 101 Freeway

Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — The 19-year-old man fatally shot by L.A. police officers in a hail of gunfire on the 101 Freeway had once been in the Los Angeles Police Department Explorer Academy but was removed for disciplinary reasons, officials said.

Police would not say what the disciplinary reasons were nor when exactly Abdul Arian was in the program, but they confirmed Thursday that he had once been part of the academy that teaches students about careers in law enforcement.

Arian, who was killed Thursday morning after a high-speed chase ended on the 101 Freeway in Woodland Hills, had wanted to become a police officer, his family said.
