Who is Dijon Kizzee
His real name is Dijon Kizzee, who was shot and killed by his deputy mayors on August 31 after an alleged car law violation while he was riding a bike.
He allegedly tried to escape after being stopped.
“The suspect was carrying some clothes in his hands, and one of the officers punched him in the face and threw the things in his hands,” said Lt. Brandon Dean. “The deputies noted that inside the clothes that were dropped there was a black semi-automatic pistol, and at that time there was shooting from the side of a deputy.”
In keeping with my promise for transparency, @LASDHQ will be hosting a press conference today, 3pm, at HOJ to release the details of the Dijon Kizzee DIS.

The police department claimed that Kizi had “made a request for a firearm.”
The bullets hit Kizi more than once. He died at the scene of the accident.
The shooting in which the deputy of police took part sparked protests and demonstrations in South Los Angeles.
Najee Ali, a representative for Kizzee’s family, will speak outside the Hall of Justice at 4 p.m. Thursday to provide the family’s response to the sheriff’s department investigation.
Sheriff’s officials said Kizzee was riding a bicycle on Aug. 31 in the Westmont area when deputies stopped him for an unspecified vehicle code violation. After he was stopped, he allegedly tried to run away and dropped clothing items containing a firearm. Sheriff’s officials have said he made a motion toward the gun, but Kizzee’s family and community activists have accused the deputies of shooting an unarmed man in the back.
