Inglewood SILENT on officer-involved shooting at Darby Park on Memorial Day

INGLEWOOD – An unreported police officer-involved shooting occurred at a local park on May 27.

A resident who lives near the area alerted 2UrbanGirls, believing someone had been shot in Darby Park, in the 3400 block of Arbor Vitae, off Crenshaw Boulevard.

“There is a heavy police presence at the entrance to the park, can you please take a look,” the resident asked.

2UrbanGirls was then contacted by an Inglewood city employee who drove by the scene and reported the same scenario.

The county medical examiner’s office confirmed no one was killed at the scene.

While police investigated the shooting, city officials gathered on the South Lawn of City Hall to commemorate the veterans.

The City has $100,000 of reason to keep quiet about what happened at Darby Park on Memorial Day, because that’s the amount it has allocated for a free music festival later this month- this.

Darby Park is known as one of the city’s deadliest parks.

The city has continually refused to comment to 2UrbanGirls on crime in Inglewood, with Mayor James Butts hand-selecting which media outlets will receive press releases written by his office.
