Man dies after Los Angeles police station shooting

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A man suspected of wounding an officer while shooting up a Los Angeles police station died Thursday at a hospital more than two weeks after the attack, authorities said.

Daniel Christoph Yealu, 29. died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, coroner's Assistant Chief Ed Winter said.

Yealu, 29, was wounded in the April 7 shootout with two officers at the West Traffic Division. He had been charged with attempted murder.

Yealu, a onetime security guard, had applied to join the Los Angeles Police Department in 2009 but was rejected.

Police said he walked into the station, told the desk officer, "'I have a complaint,'" and opened fire with a handgun.

The wounded officer has been released from the hospital. The other officer in the shootout wasn't hurt.

Yealu left an AK-47 rifle in his car when he entered the police station, authorities said. Officers serving a search warrant at his West Los Angeles home said they turned up several more guns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.

My gah,, who's the ditzy blonde doing the reporting?

BTW, nice weapons, I wonder if they'll come up for auction at the annual police bazaar so they can support the homeless? None of that stuff was Kommufornia compliant where if you own over ten rounds you're dubbed #1 on the most wanted list.

Ironic this nutjob didn't choose to use his long weapons in his standoff relying on the lowly handgun instead. Those long distance 30 rounders did him no good at all..

@ HI George.. I am ashamed to see you us a chalice as your icon. As a UU you are misrepresenting our community horribly. Your comment is absolutely ignorant and fits perfectly what kgc073 is saying.

It is the mind. His mind had had always thought about "guns"; "shoots"; he finally shot at innocence.
Parents are busy working don't have much time for children.
The schools should require to have a class to train the mind of the children practice:
"Peace; compassion; love; let go; forgive; forget; move on; and etc.
If they hear about these words often will help them to survive.
