INGLEWOOD — Inglewood police say eight officers involved in the death of a homeless man were not involved in the department’s three previous fatal shootings that date back to May.

The department released the officers’ names on Friday, one day after the City Council announced the officers had been suspended pending further training.

Police say the officers fired as many as 47 times on Sunday when Eddie Felix Franco appeared to reach for a gun in his waistband.

The gun turned out to be fake.

Some of the bullets injured a pit bull and grazed the head of a passing motorist.
Police say they are “responding aggressively” to the City Council’s order to review training within the department.

The council also suggested that police consider recruiting from other law enforcement agencies until improvements are made.

The council also ordered a review of the entire department to decide whether all officers need similar direction.
