A police lieutenant released the name of an 18-year-old man from Los Angeles who was arrested by police during an officer-involved shooting Saturday night.

Tyshawn M. Goodman was booked on suspicion of assault on a police officer and was being held in lieu of $100,000 bail at the Los Angeles County USC’s Medical Ward, said Pasadena police Lt. Tracey Ibarra. Goodman was listed in serious but stable condition.

Ibarra said Goodman suffered an injury to his left elbow when he went through a window while being chase by police.
Officers responding about 9:30 p.m. Saturday to the 1400 block of North Garfield Avenue on a call of a fight in progress came upon a suspect who reportedly pointed a handgun at them.

When officers attempted to detain Goodman, he fled on foot into an apartment complex, where an officer involved shooting ultimately occurred, according to a police statement.

“The suspect was injured when he dove through a plate glass bedroom window in his attempt to evade police,” Chief of Police Phillip Sanchez of the Pasadena Police Department said.

Goodman was taken into custody and Sanchez said officers recovered a firearm.

Since their investigation is ongoing, Sanchez said it is not yet possible to release details about why officers opened fire, how many shots were fired and what those bullets struck.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office was advised of the incident and the police will present their case for filing consideration early this week, he said.
