Eastbound lanes of the 101 Freeway remained closed Thursday morning in Woodland Hills as the LAPD investigates the police shooting of a teenager after a brief car chase.

What began as a high-speed pursuit ended shortly before 10 p.m. Wednesday, when 19-year-old Abdul Arian got out of his car, began running and was shot by officers.

more from google news:

“Los Angeles police have not said whether the man who was shot and killed by officers was armed. The man’s family identified him as Abdul Arian and said he was unarmed. An uncle said the young man both wanted to be a police officer and feared police, and he wondered aloud if officers could have used non-lethal force. A graduate of Taft High School in Woodland Hills, Arian was attending Pierce College.”

Senate delays confirmation hearing for Steve Glazer

A Senate confirmation hearing for California State University Trustee Steve Glazer was put on hold today as Gov. Jerry Brown sought to shore up Republican support.

Senate Republican leader Bob Huff said he met with the Democratic governor today to discuss Glazer’s confirmation vote and other issues.  The caucus has not yet taken a position on the appointment, which requires a two-thirds vote of the full Senate.
