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.

“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.”
